New York City Overtime Wage Attorneys Help Drivers Recover Illegally Withheld Wages


Strong legal guidance for professional drivers in New York City

Drivers are routinely asked to work much more than the 40 hours required for overtime wages to kick in. Although some types of drivers are exempt from having to be paid for overtime wages, many drivers in New York City are not exempt from having to be paid overtime. Our NYC drivers’ rights attorneys at Hepworth, Gershbaum & Roth, PLLC help drivers analyze whether employers have been paying them unfairly. When businesses commit wage theft, our attorneys help you take legal action to fully recover all of the compensation you deserve.

Damages available to drivers in NYC that take legal action to recover unpaid overtime wages

The law is on your side when employers have failed to pay employees the overtime wages earned. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, our New York City drivers’ rights attorneys help you file your claim in state or federal court to maximize the damages that you are likely to recover. Whether your claim is brought in New York state court or federal court, you do not have to worry about paying our attorneys out of your own pocket. The law requires employers to pay attorney’s fees directly to us in addition to the damages that you are entitled to recover. 

The types of compensation that drivers can expect to recover from unpaid overtime claims include:

  • All wages owed

  • The interest accrued from the money owed

  • Attorney’s fees

  • Punitive damages (in some cases)

What is the standard for when overtime wages are owed in New York?

The general rule of thumb for when overtime must be paid is whenever an employee works 40 hours or more in any seven day period. This does not mean any calendar week. It means any time spent working more than 40 hours within any seven consecutive days. Our NYC drivers’ rights attorneys find that employers try to mislead drivers into thinking that overtime only applies for a work week. We can help you put an end to the abuse and recover the time and a half that you have earned.
