Experienced Wage and Hour Attorneys in New York Enforce Paycheck Laws for Disadvantaged Employees


Tough on employers that purposely short employee paychecks of rightful compensation

There are too many business owners out there that think they can get away with abusing their employees by not fully paying them the wages that they are due. Every employer must comply with both state and federal laws. You have the right to be compensated when an employer breaks the law and intentionally gives you smaller paychecks than you deserve.  Under New York State law your paycheck, must be clear and contain the information how you are paid, and a detailed breakdown of your pay and any deductions.  This must also be stated in your primary language. At Hepworth, Gershbaum & Roth, PLLC, our attorneys help employees take a stand against unethical employers that cheat the employees that keep them in business.

What punishments exist for employers that willfully refuse to pay their employees?

When you show up for work you have the right to be paid in full for your labor. Unfortunately, some employers are dishonest and take actions to deliberately avoid paying their employees what they deserve. Our labor attorneys in New York City help you take a stand against employers that refuse to pay their employees that they are entitled to receive. We represent clients throughout the state of New York and nationally. Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be able to recover wages from up to six years ago. In addition to being paid what you are owed, you may also be able to recover attorney’s fees, costs and in punitive damages in some circumstances. The most common tactics businesses use to avoid paying their employees include:

  • Not paying employees for slow business days

  • Delaying payment

  • Paying less than the minimum wage for employees paid “under the table”

  • Docking hours off of timesheets

  • Unpaid mandatory meetings or trainings

  • Refusing to pay overtime

  • Restaurants not paying servers the equivalent of $8.00/hour with averaging tips and hourly wage
    (NY State minimum wage went up Dec. 31, 2013)
