How Frequently Must Texas Employers Pay Employees?

Like Texas, the majority of states have labor law regulations that require employers to pay employees on regularly scheduled paydays with a certain minimum frequency.

Texas employers are required to pay most hourly employees via a regular payday at least weekly, biweekly, semimonthly or monthly.

Texas requires a monthly payday for employees exempt from overtime provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act (which include executive, administrative, and professional personnel).

Exemptions from Payday Laws

Under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), payday laws (and many other labor laws) were designed especially to protect hourly employees, rather than highly-compensated salaried employees. Therefore, payday laws often exempt or have looser requirements for employees considered to be "executives, professionals, or administrative employees". Outside salespeople, who are often paid on commission, are also often exempt from payday laws.

Other Payday Laws

In addition to regulating payday frequency, Texas has other labor laws regulating things such as payroll wage garnishment, payment methods (suh as check and direct deposit), vacation pay, and final payroll following termination.
