Wage and Hour Litigation
While many companies pay their employees fairly some seek to increase profits by refusing to pay their employees for all hours worked, or by misclassifying their employees as independent contractors or exempt.
Under federal and New York law employers are required to pay their employees the minimum wage, and must pay overtime for hours worked over forty hours a week unless the employer can satisfy one of a narrow set of exceptions.
If you have not been paid all of your earned wages you may have a claim against your employer and may be entitled to back pay and other relief.
