Employment Law Attorneys—Staten Island, New York
Wage and Hour Disputes | Employment Discrimination or Harassment | Misclassification of Workers | Minimum Wage and Overtime Pay Violations | Off the Clock Work Requirements
If your employer has denied you overtime rightfully earned, or has demanded that you stay after work without pay, or take work home to meet a deadline, you are not alone. Between 2007 and 2011, the U.S. Department of Labor initiated almost 70,000 enforcement actions against employers who were alleged to have violated wage and hour provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). In nearly three out of every four claims investigated, the Wage and Hour Division found violations. Fines of nearly $700 million were imposed, an average of $13,500 per claim. If you have been the victim of wrongful conduct by your employer under the wage and hour provisions of the FLSA, the lawyers at Leeds Brown Law, PC, can help.
