Employment Law Attorneys in Queens, New York

Wage and Hour Violations | Denial of Overtime Pay or Minimum Wage | Misclassification of Employees | Mandatory “Off-the-Clock” Work | Termination Pay Disputes | Workplace Discrimination or Harassment

It happens all too often. In an effort to maximize profits, your employer will ask you to complete projects on your own time, or will make you work without a break, even for a meal. Though you may be a wage earner, your employer may misclassify you as an exempt employee, in order to avoid paying you overtime, as required by law. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), a federal statute, was enacted to protect the rights of workers in just these types of situations. If your employer has violated your rights, the lawyers at Leeds Brown Law, PC, can help.

At Leeds Brown Law, PC, we have fought for the rights of workers across the state of New York for more than 30 years, including men and women in Queens. We emphasize hard work and thorough preparation, and are committed to representing you with the highest levels of personal attention and professional integrity. Experience tells us that every case is different, so we take the time to learn the specific details of your case, as well as your needs.

Our Queens Employment Law Practice

The Fair Labor Standards Act provides protection from a wide range of employer misconduct, including:

  • Failure to pay overtime as prescribed by the law
  • Denial of breaks, including meal breaks
  • Requiring employees to take work home, to perform work-related tasks on the way to or from work or “off the clock”
  • Failure to pay minimum wage
  • Misclassification of workers as exempt, in order to avoid overtime

We also represent individuals who have been subjected to discrimination or harassment on the job, including wrongful conduct based on race, age, gender, disability, religion or creed, or sexual orientation.
