Houston Wage And Hour Claims Lawyer

A key component of any employment contract includes the negotiation of an employee's salary and other benefits such as vacation benefits, health benefits, sick time and overtime. Furthermore, both federal and state laws protect employees' rights to reasonable working hours, mandatory breaks and unemployment benefits contingent upon their employment status.

I am Houston wage and hour claims attorney Peter Costea. At my law firm, I protect employees' rights to be paid fairly and honestly for the hard work they do. My clients come from a variety of industries, from health care to oil and gas companies. I also represent U.S. citizens working abroad as well as foreign nationals working in the Houston area involved in wage and hour disputes.

Protecting Clients' Rights To Fair Compensation

When statutes such as the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) or the Texas Payday Law are not upheld, employees may feel powerless to pursue an employment claim, especially when an employer retaliates against an employee who reports financial misconduct with regard to his or her wages. Some may even be unaware of their rights to addressing wage and hour issues at work.

As your advocate, I will help you understand your rights and various legal options for pursuing a claim for:

  • Unpaid overtime
  • Unpaid wages
  • Unpaid commission
  • Denied unemployment
  • Other wage and hour abuses

If you feel you are being unfairly compensated based on your age, race, sex, disability or other form of discrimination, I have the experience to navigate the overlapping issues involved in your case. As an experienced trial lawyer, I am fully prepared to bring your claim to court if necessary to protect your rights and interests.

Denial Of Tenure At University

Part of my practice has been devoted to representing academic professionals involved in unfair denial of tenure claims and other industry-specific wage and hour issues. As a former scholar and lecturer myself, I have the unique insight to help academics protect their employment rights.
