New York Attorneys Provide Workplace Protections for Service and Repair Technicians


Recovering unpaid compensation for wage theft victims

Repair technicians are entrusted into homes to solve problems. They must be able to troubleshoot problems accurately and quickly. The New York employee rights attorneys at Hepworth, Gershbaum & Roth, PLLC find it shameful that so many repair technicians are not paid what they are due from employers. We are here for you when you need to take legal action against a past or present employer that has committed wage theft.

What is wage theft in New York City?

Wage theft is a huge problem for workers of all classes in New York and throughout the country. It occurs whenever an employer keeps money that should have been paid to employees. Too many employers feel entitled and more important than the employees that make them profits—they find ways to illegally retain more money than they should. When they do, employees have the right to take legal action with the help of a New York City wage theft attorney. Wage theft attorneys in New York are able to help you fully recover your damages as well as all additional damages you may be legally entitled to recover. Wage theft occurs in many different ways. The most common ways that employers commit wage theft with their repair technician include:

  • Not paying for driving time between jobs

  • Not paying for working through lunch breaks

  • Unpaid overtime

  • Not receiving compensation for employment related expenses

  • Unpaid training

  • Being misclassified as an independent contractor

Does it make a difference if you are a repair technician classified as an independent contractor?

Too many repair technicians in New York are misclassified as independent contractors by their employers. Employers try to get away with this because they can pay their repair significantly less than if they were considered employees. Employees are owed much more than independent contractors. However, the amount of control that most employees exert over their repair technicians makes them actual employees. Our NYC employee rights attorneys help misclassified employees take legal action against their employers. Once you have been declared to be a misclassified employee, we help you fully recover all of the compensation you are owed from your employer.
