New York City Employee Rights Attorneys Provide Legal Protection to Security Guards


Recovering earned compensation for wage theft victims

Security guards are called upon to risk their safety when danger occurs. If the job hazards are not enough, many security guards in New York do not receive the full and fair compensation they have earned. The New York employee rights attorneys at Hepworth, Gershbaum & Roth, PLLC have been advocating for security guards for more than two decades.

What is considered wage theft in the state of New York?

Wage theft is the nonpayment of wages earned to any employee, and it can occur in any number of wages. The most unethical businesses throughout the state of New York have become very adept at cutting corners on the wages they pay their security personnel. Wage theft is a major problem, and the legislature continually passes laws that empower our NYC wage theft attorneys to litigate more aggressively against those employers. We have seen it all when it comes to wage theft. We know all of the ways that employers manipulate their employees into thinking that they are not victims of wage theft. The most common grounds for a wage theft lawsuit in New York include:

How does being misclassified as an independent contractor in New York effect security guards?

Employers try to mislead people into believing that they should be considered independent contractors, and that it is not a big difference to be considered an independent contractor. However, there are important tax, wage and workers' compensation consequences that occur when you are misclassified by your employer. The test to whether you are an independent contractor essentially boils down to factors that examine the extent of control that the employer has over you. In almost every circumstance with security guards, they are actually legally employees of the business. Our employee misclassification attorneys at Hepworth, Gershbaum & Roth, PLLC are here to help you analyze your case and recover all of the back wages that you are owed
