Dedicated New York City Employee Rights Attorneys Put a Stop to Abusive Tactics from Plumbing and Heating Contractors


Putting the heat on unethical contractors

While workplace abuses are now relatively rare in most fields, the abuse of workers in the plumbing and heating industry still runs rampant. At Hepworth, Gershbaum & Roth, PLLC, our New York City employee rights attorneys fight abusive plumbing and heating contractors head on. We put a stop to illegal practices and recover the rightful compensation employees deserve.

Employee misclassification costs New York City plumbing and heating workers millions

The easiest way for plumbing and heating contractors to save money on payroll is to misclassify employees as independent contractors. Employers can save millions of dollars when an employee is an independent contractor, not having to pay taxes, overtime and workers' compensation. Our New York City employee rights attorneys set the record straight and recover the compensation employees are due.

Our New York City employment law attorneys are highly skilled and work hard on behalf of wronged employees, recovering millions in settlements and verdicts for clients.

If you are a current employee, the law provides you with protection from retaliation for asserting your rights as an employee.
