Many companies are in violation of overtime laws because they force employees to complete job tasks before clocking in or after clocking out. This is considered working off the clock and is an overtime violation under Texas law. Some companies use other tactics to avoid paying their employees overtime, including: averaging hours over two work weeks, refusing to pay overtime because the workers failed to obtain permission to work more hours, and failing to pay workers for breaks lasting between five and twenty minutes, among others.
When employers try to avoid paying an employee time and a half or overtime, they may be violating overtime laws.
