  • No pay for time worked! Texas

    My husband was laid off due to lack of money in the company. He sells custom made stone products. For the last two months he has frequently had to wait on his paycheck for several days after pay day. He was paid a weekly salary plus 10% commission of all his sales.
    His paycheck for 5-27-11 was shorted considerably and he has not received a paycheck for June 3rd as well. The owner has told him he will pay him along with the commissions due on the balances due from jobs in progress. There are about 7 jobs in progress.
    How long can he legally not pay this money. What is our recourse?
    Thanks

    If he doesn't get his pay, he can file a wage claim with the TWC. I assume he is an employee
    & not an IC.

      TX has the TX PayDay Law. Here is a link to the details.

        Yes, he was an employee. I guess he will need to file the claim.
        Thanks for both of you inputs.
