Hempstead, New York, Employment Law Attorneys
Wage and Hour Violations | Discrimination or Harassment at Work | Misclassification of Employees | Minimum Wage or Overtime Violations | Denial of Breaks
Between 2007 and 2011, the U.S. Department of Labor conducted nearly 70,000 enforcement actions based on claims of alleged violations of the wage and hour laws set forth in the Fair Labor Standards Act. In 73% of the cases, they found a violation, and employers were required to pay an average of more than $13,000 per claim, or almost 2/3rd of a billion dollars in back wages.
