Wage & Hour
There has been a substantial increase in wage-and-hour lawsuits in Texas and nationwide over the past few years. Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) wage-and-hour liability is a risk employers of all sizes and in all industries face. The FLSA and the accompanying regulations are notoriously complex and easy to inadvertently violate. Ramey & Flock’s attorneys are experienced in advising employers regarding compliance, representing employers in Department of Labor investigations, and representing employers in wage and hour lawsuits.
Dealing with employee leave entitlements and requests for disability accommodation are a recurring challenge for employers. The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) place strict requirements on employers to carefully address leave of absence and accommodation requests. This area rife with potential pitfalls, and Ramey & Flock’s employment attorneys can help your business with both compliance advising and litigation representation regarding leave and accommodation matters.
