Employment Lawyers in Hicksville, New York
Wage and Hour Fights | Discrimination or Harassment at Work | Overtime or Minimum Wage Violations | Misclassification of Employees | Denial of Breaks | Off the Clock Work Requirements
Most of us have stayed at work every now and then, even though we are off the clock, just to finish a task. But what if your employer requires that you do that on a regular basis, or demands that you take work home to meet a deadline, or that you stop on the way to or from work and run errands for the company? What if you are unable to take breaks because of production demands, or your employer deducts time taken for breaks, even when you don’t take them?
