Overview

Employers have all kinds of creative ways to illegally underpay their workers.

Whether you are salaried or hourly; whether you do construction work, work in a restaurant, work as a salesperson or something else entirely, you can get a good head start learning about your rights, which is the first step to making things right.

Fortunately, the lawyers at AndersonDodson, P.C. know how to hold these employers accountable, and to make them pay what is owed.

 

The following are just a few of the common types of wage and hour issues we have helped our clients with in the past:

  • Failing to pay time-and-a-half for overtime work
  • Not paying for overtime hours
  • Misclassifying workers as “salaried” rather than “hourly” to avoid overtime pay
  • Deducting time for breaks even when workers did not take them
  • Errors in calculating overtime rates
  • Paying tipped employees too little
  • Demanding that tips be shared with managers
  • Refusal to pay at least minimum wage
  • Working employees “off the clock” to avoid paying overtime
  • “Skimming” hours off time logs
  • Making deductions without employee consent or for impermissible things

Do not be afraid to question your pay!

  1. The law protects you if you decide to pursue your claim. Any retaliation by employers for your choice to do so is illegal.
  2. You can talk to us at AndersonDodson to discuss your rights and options confidentially. We will not contact your employer until you’ve made the decision that you want us to pursue your claim.

If you are being cheated by your employer, we can get you the money you deserve. Contact us now at Call us now at (212) 961-7639 or send us an email! to discuss your pay-related issues.
