Texas Overtime Law



Texas Minimum Wage Law

The Texas Minimum Wage Law does not contain specific dollar amounts.  Instead it adopts the current Federal Minimum Wage.  Therefore the current applicable minimum wage for Texas workers is $7.25 per hour.

Frequency and Notice of Payday

Each employee who is exempt from the overtime provisions of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) must be paid at least once a month; others must be paid at least twice a month. Semi-monthly pay periods must consist as nearly as possible of an equal number of days. Within those limitations, an employer may designate any paydays he/she chooses.

Notices indicating the paydays must be posted in conspicuous places in the workplace. If an employer does not designate paydays, the employer's paydays are the first and 15th of each month. If an employee quits, she/he must be paid in full at the next regular payday. If an employee is terminated, he/she must be paid in full within six days. If an employee is not paid on a payday for any reason, including the employee's absence, the employer shall pay those wages on another business day as requested by the employee.
