Boss clocked me out two hours before shift was over and did not tell me until the end of the shift.

I work at a sandwich shop and I was forced to work a double shift that gave me a total of 40 hrs. for the week. Two hours before the second shift was up
the owner clocked me out without telling me until the shift was over. He said they do not pay overtime and that the two hours that went over my 40 hrs. would
be on the next pay period as straight time.

Is this legal what they have done?

You can also make a claim with the Texas Workforce Commission. That agency has a website.

No. Your boss has violated the law. If you wish to pursue it, you should contact the Department of Labor - Wage and Hour Division.
