  • Extra Work - TX

    I recently finished some additional work for a customer outside the normal bounds of what I do. It was agreed upon between the customer, my employer and myself that I would be paid over and beyond my usual rate of pay because I had to work off premises. Because I have the standard noncompete in my employment contract I performed work for the customer but thru my employer.

    Because we are largely a "sales" business my employer pays most employees after the work has been paid for by the customer. Therefore he will not pay me until the customer has paid him. However my work was administrative. It has now been a month + and I have not been paid for the work performed.

    There was never an addendum to my employment contract signed or any written agreement. There was an oral agreement between all three parties.

    Please let me know if I can provide anymore useful information.
    Thank you.

    Are you in an exempt position or are you non-exempt (hourly paid)? We need to know in order to answer your question.
