Labor Attorneys navigate employment law for New York employees.

NY Employee Rights

The Fair Labor Standards Act is a federal legislation that prescribes a specific course of conduct employers must follow. If you’re a salaried employee your company may not have to pay you overtime, but if you’re an hourly employee they must. Employers must pay you for breaks you take during the day, and in some cases provide you with vacation and other benefits.

In many industries workers are sometimes misclassified as managers or executives. Certain employers do this to avoid paying workers overtime. Has your employer given you the title of executive or manager, but you have no authority to hire, fire, and possess no authority in respect to the decision-making process towards the work that you’re doing? If so, and you’re not being paid overtime your employer may be in violation of federal law. You may be entitled to compensation for all of the hours that you had worked in the capacity of manager or an executive in excess of 40 hours per week.

If you’re faced with a situation where your employer does not pay you for the time you spend putting on protective clothing, setting up machinery, or preparing specialized equipment that you need to perform your tasks you may be entitled for compensation for hours related that work. It’s important to know what your rights are in accordance with the federal Fair Labor Standards Act because you may be entitled to compensation if your employer has violated the federal labor standards act.
