WAGE & OVERTIME DISPUTES
Recover Your Pay With Award-Winning Counsel
All employers in New York are required to abide by certain laws dictating how and when they pay their employees. Unfortunately, these laws are often ignored and you then suffer directly as a result.

Doing so can help you recover the pay you are entitled to and hold your employer accountable.

How Do I Know If I Can File a Claim?
Currently, New York's minimum wage in "Upstate" is $11.80. This means that most full-time workers are entitled to at least this amount each hour they are on the job. Additionally, employers are also required to pay workers one and half times their regular rate for all overtime hours. Any time an employee works more than 40 hours in one week, they must receive overtime pay.
You may have a claim if your employer:
- Wrongly classified you as an independent contractor, when you are an employee
- Deliberately kept overtime pay from you
- Prohibited you from taking required breaks
- Failed to include drive time in your hours worked
- Made you work through your lunch or meal break
New York imposes a strict time frame on those wishing to file a wage and hour claim. The quicker you take action, the better your chances of recovering the money you are entitled to. Consulting with an attorney should be the first step you take toward filing your claim.
