Overview

Is there something wrong with how you are being paid?

You probably wouldn’t be looking at this website if there weren’t.

Is there something illegal with how you are being paid?

Let’s figure that out together.  And then if so, what to do about it.

There is no shortage of different and creative ways employers underpay their workers illegally.

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

You work hard for your money. You deserve to be paid fairly.

If you suspect that you haven’t been paid everything you are owed, or even if you’re just not sure, make sure to contact us to learn about your rights, and what options are available to you. You can contact us today by phone at (212) 961-7639, or shoot us an email! to discuss your pay-related issues.

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.

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 to 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

You are protected

Some people are afraid to stand up for their rights even where they know they have been paid improperly. If this applies to you, we completely understand your fears.  However, we want you to be aware of two important things. First, the process of learning more is completely confidential. Your inquiry with AndersonDodson, P.C.  is a protected communication and will not be disclosed. We will not contact your employer until you’ve made the decision to hire our firm to pursue your claim. Second, if you do decide to pursue a claim, the ability to make a complaint about not getting paid your correct wages is protected by law. This means that it is illegal for your employer to take any type of retaliatory action against you for doing so. Pragmatically, the lawyers at AndersonDodson know how to navigate those laws so that you remain as safe and protected as possible while you pursue your lawful rights.

Contact us to speak with one of our experienced attorneys if you have any type of concern about your pay. We can be reached at 212-961-7639 and are here to help you get what you deserve.
