Wage and hour laws are in place at the state and federal levels. These regulations govern how many hours that people in Texas, and elsewhere, are permitted to work and the amount they are compensated for their time.

When one business in Texas, or elsewhere, violates another’s rights, patents or contracts, it may be considered infringement.

Often, businesses will take legal action in order to obtain compensatory damages.
