Employment Lawyers in the Bronx
Wage and Hour Actions | Discrimination and Harassment | Minimum Wage Violations | Denial of Overtime | Misclassification of Employees | Denial of Breaks
Under federal law (the Fair Labor Standards Act, or FLSA), all workers in the United States have certain protections. Your employer cannot make you work in excess of a certain number of hours without paying you overtime. Your employer may not wrongfully deny you certain breaks, or make you complete work or perform work-related tasks “off the clock.” The FLSA even establishes a federal minimum wage, though many states have their own minimum wage laws. If your employer has violated your rights under the FLSA, the attorneys at Leeds Brown Law, PC, can help.
