  • Whistleblowers– Texas and federal law protect whistleblowers in many situations, including reports of violations of law by government employees, nursing home and health care employees, reports of corporate fraud under Sarbanes Oxley, refusing to do illegal acts, and numerous other situations.
  • Overtime/Minimum Wage – Federal law requires employers to pay overtime to certain non-management employees and prohibits retaliation against an employee for opposing violations of the overtime laws. Crews Law Firm represents employees in these cases.
