We fight to ensure that employees are properly compensated for all time worked. Most employees are required to be paid at least the minimum wage, on time and in full. In addition, they are entitled to 1.5 times their regular rate for all hours worked in excess of 40 in one workweek. Employers often misclassify their employees as “exempt” from these compensation requirements and refuse to pay them in accordance with federal and state laws.

Under federal law, employees can typically recover their unpaid wages for up to three years from the date it was earned. Some state laws, such as in New York, allow for up to six years for such recovery. Employees may also be eligible for additional compensation and penalties against their employers stemming from their violations of federal and state wage and hour laws.
We are dedicated to representing employees and combating such unlawful wage theft practices. If you believe you have not been properly compensated, or have any questions regarding your employer’s practices, please contact our attorneys today for a free and confidential consultation: (877) 247-4292.
