Securing Lost Oil Field Wages in Texas

We have taken on cases where oil field workers did not even realize their wages were being withheld from them. We can review your case and help you understand your rights and the types of wages you are eligible to receive.

There are a number of methods that employers will use to avoid paying their employees the wages they worked for. If you think you are not being paid the wages you are entitled to, review the list below and contact our lawyers right away:

  • Misclassification: Certain job classifications exempt employees from benefits like overtime. If an employer misclassifies an oil field worker as an exempt employee, the worker can lose out on privileges they would normally be entitled to.
  • Overtime work: In many oil field wage cases, employers paid workers less than the legal minimum wage for overtime.
  • "Off the clock" work: Some companies refuse to pay their workers for meetings held at worksites and the time needed for travel. In some cases, these hours are actually payable and should not be overlooked by employers.
