Bronx Employment Lawyers
Violation of Wage and Hour Laws | Discrimination and Harassment on the Job | Minimum Wage Claims | Overtime Pay Issues | Employee Misclassifications
In a report issued in 2011, the U.S. Department of Labor acknowledged that its wage and hour division found violations in nearly three out of every four enforcement actions it took. The average claim assessed for back wages was more than $13,000. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) gives workers across the United States protection from employer attempts to avoid or minimize wages due. If you have been the victim of wrongful conduct by your employer involving your pay, the attorneys at Leeds Brown Law, PC, can help.
