New York Unpaid Overtime Wage Disputes
There is a certain trust that exists between employers and employees — the employee does a, b or c; the employer pays x, y or z. Both sides benefit. For some employers, this is not good enough. However, the law states that if you are not an exempt employee (generally executives, administrative personnel, professionals, outside salespersons, certain computer workers and otherwise highly paid employees) — you are entitled to added compensation for the overtime work you perform.
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and other laws specifically govern which employees can receive overtime pay and the minimum amounts that employers have to pay. If your employer has tried to rewrite these rules, talk to us.
At Leeds Brown Law, P.C., our employment law attorneys handle unpaid overtime wage disputes for clients on Long Island and throughout the New York City area, and have had significant success in these matters. Our firm files claims on behalf of individual clients as well as groups, and can take unpaid overtime wage disputes on a nationwide basis as well.
In most unpaid overtime wage disputes, employers are well aware of what the law requires and simply try to make an end-run around it by misclassifying certain employees as “exempt.” Our lawyers have seen employers try to get away with this kind of illegal activity on many occasions. We excel at helping our clients collect the compensation they have earned and the justice they deserve.
Our numerous success stories are due to our employment attorneys’ hard work, dedication and passion for providing high-quality legal representation and outstanding personal service. Contact us today for a free, confidential case evaluation.
