Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Thanks for your question and good afternoon.Here are the federal and Texas payday laws for your reference.
Each employee who is exempt from the overtime provisions of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) must be paid at least once a month; others must be paid at least twice a month. Semi-monthly pay periods must contain as nearly as possible an equal number of days. Within those limitations, an employer may designate any paydays he or she chooses.
Employers must post notices of paydays in conspicuous places in the workplace. If an employer does not designate paydays, the employer's paydays are the first and 15th of each month.
If an employee quits, they must be paid in full at the next regular payday. Terminated employees must be paid in full within six days.
If an employee is not paid on a payday for any reason, including the employee's absence, the employer must pay those wages on another business day as requested by the employee.
Bonuses or wages paid on a commission basis are due in a timely manner according to the terms of agreement between the employee and employer.
Here since these are hourly employees they are supposed to be paid twice a month under the FLSA above.
Reference from TWC..
You would need to convert to a twice monthly pay day here since they are hourly employees under the reference I gave you above.
