NYC Dedicated New York City Minimum Wage Attorneys Recover Lost Wages from Past or Current Employers


Aggressive litigation against businesses owing employees wages

Some employers will do anything if it means saving some money. They even risk breaking state and federal laws by paying employees below the minimum wage. The New York City employment law attorneys at Hepworth, Gershbaum & Roth help you hold past or present employers financially accountable for paying you less than the minimum wage. We have taken on Fortune 500 employers in New York and throughout the country to recover damages for paying below the minimum wage. Our team of attorneys tenaciously litigates against employers that abuse hardworking employees that have not been paid what they deserve. 

When are minimum wages required?

Both New York and Federal law require employees to be paid a minimum wage for all of the hours they work. For many businesses, labor is their biggest expense. Management looks at the expense of labor and tries to cut those costs in a number of ways. Businesses break the law when they cut their labor costs to a point that is below the state or federal minimum wage. When this happens, we are here to help you take legal action against them. Our New York City minimum wage attorneys have built our reputation among the employment law community as a firm that can take on even the largest Fortune 500 companies. The most common grounds for minimum wage violations in New York City include:

  • Paying the federal minimum wage, but not paying the New York state minimum wage

  • Employers making employees accept lump sums instead of hourly labor

  • Paying undocumented workers below minimum wage

  • Not paying employees for all time spent at work

  • Telling employees that certain tasks are not considered on the clock

  • Taking deductions from pay

What compensation can you receive from a minimum wage violation in New York?

The monetary compensation depends on the circumstances around your case, whether you file in state or federal court and what law you file your lawsuit under. Our employee rights attorneys go through all of the facts of your case to help you make a decision about how to pursue recovering compensation from your past or present employer. You are generally entitled to attorney’s fees and statutory damages regardless of the type of minimum wage lawsuit you file. Statutory damages are a like a fine paid from the employer to you for violating the law. We hold your employer accountable to ensure you are monetarily compensated to the full extent of the law.
