An individual in this circumstance needs to immediately file a wage claim with the Texas Workforce Commission. Sooner is much better than later because it sounds like his employer is having financial difficulty. A wage claim can be started using the form here. Filing a wage claim is a form of "protected activity," which means that your husband cannot be retaliated against in any manner by his employer for filing a claim. The TWC will investigate and issue an award against your husband's employer which can be converted into a judgment and collected as one.
If I can clarify anything at all for you, please do not hesitate to ask. It is my pleasure to assist you further if necessary....
Immediately file a wage claim. That is your husband's recourse in this circumstance and is absolutely what you should do right away.
