More facts are needed to fully evaluate your situation. However, in certain circumstances, deductions from an employee's salary are permissible if the employee is absent from work for one full day or more full days. It would not be permissible to deduct if an employee is only absent for a half day,...Read more »
He pays both of us 250 a week and put the check in my name. He said that the amount we pay in rent is also part of our pay. We get no overtime or holiday pay. I never get any days off but once a year. Even if I go run an errand I still have to answer phones. I want to know if this is legal and if... Read more »
I am sorry but you will need to speak with someone to give the factual details but this is not a forum that you should use. The best advise I can offer is to contact the Texas Workforce Commission, (TWC) the regulating agency for employers. Considering all the hours you work along with pay, if you...Read more »
If the 11/12 year old is your child, they can work but the type of work is limited as are the hours. See below. As for alcohol, believe it or not, if a minor is within eyesight of parent or guardian they can actually drink but to serve such beverages I think they must be 21.

Thanks for your question; I will try to give you the best answer I can given the complexity. I am very sorry for your loss and because your situation is complicated you need to seek legal counsel, but I am sure you already know that so I can give you a better answer than that, right?
Thanks for your question. Texas is an "at will" employment state, meaning employees can be fired for any reason at all, as long as it is not for a Constitutionally protected right (i.e. race, religion...). As for requiring a deputy to purchase their own uniforms, yes, just as nurses must purchase...Read more »
This is not "fair" but it does not violate the law unless it is a pretext (cover up) for unlawful discrimination or retaliation. Additional options may apply if you are covered by a Collective Bargaining Agreement.

Roll that account over to an IRA with a different custodian. The new custodian will help you get it rolled over. Fees might be higher but at least you will get access to your funds. Before you withdraw from it make sure you understand the tax implications.
If I understand your question correctly you are asking if the employer can deduct both the employee's share of payroll taxes and the employer's share of payroll taxes. No, the employer has to pay their share. The only taxes deducted from your paycheck should be the taxes you are responsible for...Read more »

Yes I believe you should get paid for that if the employer has it in writing you will accrue vacation time and your employer should be penalized for not already paying you for that because it must pay your final pay w/i 6 days. The Texas Employment Commission can also help you with that claim as...Read more »
Of course, but perhaps not in the way you may believe. If you are taken off work from both jobs the carrier must base your income benefits on your total earnings from both jobs. [Total wages (and benefits if stopped while off work) for the past 13 weeks divided by 13 to arrive at your average...Read more »
I recently applied at a company and coincidentally knew an individual that worked there, who gave me an initial recommendation.

In Texas, stated specifically that I wasn't willing to move before employment. I received no special knowledge or benefit for non compete, the knowledge is generally known. I cannot work within 50 miles from or within year after leaving my employer. My question is, if I am forced to move to another... Read more »
Hello, I would suggest having a Texas lawyer review your entire agreement. Non-competes in Texas are enforceable under certain circumstances. 50 miles seems like a huge area but I would need to see the whole agreement to really answer this question.
