New York Unpaid Wages and Overtime Claims

In an effort to reduce expenses and increase profits, some employers will take advantage of their employees by underpaying them, i.e., wage theft. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and New York wage and hour laws were enacted to address these injustices and designed to protect employees from employers who fail to pay their workers all of their wages, including minimum wage and overtime pay.

Federal and New York State law require that employers pay most employees time and a half for any hours worked over 40 hours per week. There are some positions for which overtime laws don’t apply. However, if you’re working over 40 hours a week and aren’t getting time and a half, or have been told you aren’t entitled to overtime because you’re a salaried employee, you may have been misled.

Misclassification and Exempt Employee Status in New York

Frequently in unpaid overtime wage disputes employers know the laws but are simply trying to game the system by misclassifying employees as exempt. While there are certain employees who are exempt—executives, administrative personnel, professionals, outside sales, certain computer workers and other highly paid employees—most employees are entitled to overtime compensation for work performed. At the Law Offices of Fausto E. Zapata, Jr., we have helped hundreds of clients obtain unpaid wages they were due.
