Wage and hour laws are designed to protect workers from employers. Whether you are protected by the wage and hour laws depends on several factors, including whether you are an exempt or non-exempt employee, what your job duties are, and your salary.
Comp time is a term used to describe allowing an employee take time off at a later date in exchange for overtime work performed, rather than paying that employee the proper compensation (typically time and a half). In most instances, it is illegal for your employer to force you to take comp time rather than pay you overtime wages.
If your employer is forcing you to take comp time in lieu of overtime pay, you should consult an experienced attorney. At Leeds Brown Law, P.C., our lawyers have extensive experience in handling employment claims. Such employment claims consist of overtime claims and wage and hour law violations. We represent employees throughout Long Island and the New York City metropolitan area, as well as across the country.
