Wage and Hour
Back to Practice Areas
Every day millions of employees working in New York are defrauded and denied legal wages.
By state and federal laws, all employees must receive all wages without exception. Working with an experienced New York City wage and hour claim attorney can help you lose wages and hours from your employer.
Your employer can steal from you in many different ways, including:

  • Not paying you overtime
  • Paying your wages below the minimum wage
  • Asking you to work overtime
  • Shaving or tampering with your work hours
  • Stealing from you
  • Misclassifying you as an "independent contractor."
  • Failing to provide you with accurate pay notices or pay stubs
  • If you encounter any of these violations.
You may be entitled to double the Amount your employer owes you Amount! Speak immediately with a New York City wage and hour claims attorney to discuss your legal options.
Many forms of harassment and discrimination can lead to compensation for wages and hours of work. Employees can report any form of discrimination they have witnessed, including actions taken against someone based on disability, age, race, national origin, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. If you are the victim of harassment in the workplace, a common suggestion is to file a formal complaint internally with the department responsible for these issues at your company. However, if this leads to retaliation, you will face another problem.
As an employee in New York City, you do not have to suffer a reduction in wages or hours of work for reporting illegal activities.

Improper termination can ruin your career and put you and your family in financial trouble. Shift changes may not matter to some employees, but they may be devastating for single mothers or fathers with children in the family. Regardless of the reduction in your wages or working hours, if you believe this results from a sexual harassment complaint, please contact an employment attorney in New York City to file a claim.
Our company is not afraid to take the case to trial. We know how to use evidence of retaliation and reduced wages/hours to make your case attractive to the jury.
