Wage and Hour Laws
Your legal matter may involve an issue over minimum wage, overtime, the spread of hours, tips, uniforms, meal or rest breaks, or any other aspect of your employment. Minimum wage and other laws regarding wages and hours are governed by state and federal laws to which employers must comply. If you have a dispute over unpaid wages, withheld wages, illegal deductions, illegal kickbacks being taken from your wages, or tips being appropriated by your employer, a Brooklyn wage & hour attorney at the firm can investigate the matter, advise you on the legal factors, including your rights under state and federal law, and initiate legal action to remedy the matter.
The minimum wage in New York is $7.25 per hour, which every worker has a right to receive under law. Those who earn tips of at least $2.25 per hour may receive a minimum wage of $5.00 per hour and different rates may apply to other types of service employees. Minimum wage and overtime laws apply to all workers in the state, even those who are undocumented, those who are paid hourly, daily, or weekly, those paid by cash or by check, and even those paid off the books.
