The Wage and Hour program includes the Texas Payday law, Child Labor law, and the Minimum Wage law. The Payday law allows employees to file wage claims for unpaid wages or compensation if they were not paid correctly. The Texas Child Labor Law ensures that a child is not employed in an occupation or manner that could harm the child's safety, health, or well-being. The Minimum Wage law requires TWC to provide information on the Texas Minimum Wage Act.
