TWC Enforces Wage Payment Law
AUSTIN – Thanks to the Texas Workforce Commission, some state residents now have the money they worked for. TWC has announced that they helped working Texans collect $13.5 million in unpaid wages between January 2009 and March 2011.
TWC administers the Texas Payday Law, which requires that private employers provide workers with the compensation they earned, in a timely manner.
Annually, TWC Labor Law investigators conduct more than 15,000 wage claim investigations across the state.
