Abilene Overtime Attorney

I have represented hundreds of overtime pay claimants and filed dozens of overtime pay cases in West Texas.  I regularly represent large numbers of workers on overtime claims in the same lawsuit.  

I handle overtime cases on a contingency basis, which means that you pay me nothing unless I recover money for you.

Abilene residents often commute to West Texas and New Mexico to work in the construction and oil and gas industries.  With the increase in drilling activity in West Texas, oilfield workers in the Abilene area and across West Texas are being asked to work long hours.  Borsellino, P.C. handles unpaid overtime cases for workers in and around Abilene.  If you have regularly worked more than forty hours per week for a current or former employer within the past three years, you may be entitled to unpaid overtime.  The Fair Labor Standards Act, or FLSA, requires that employers pay employees one-and-a-half times their regular rate for every hour worked over 40 hours in a workweek, unless the employee is “exempt.”  The FLSA also provides that employees can recover liquidated damages (also called “double damages”) and attorney’s fees in an unpaid overtime lawsuit.

Texas overtime laws are a complex field and I am an experienced Abilene overtime attorney who can answer your overtime questions.

  • If you regularly work more than forty hours per week, you may be entitled to overtime pay.
  • If you are classified as an independent contractor but your work is controlled by the company you work for, you may have a claim for unpaid overtime.
  • If you are paid the same hourly rate even for hours worked above forty in a week, you may recover overtime pay.
  • If you are a short-haul driver who is paid by the load, regardless of the number of hours worked, you should ask whether you are owed unpaid overtime.
