New York Wage and Hour Attorneys Help Employees Take a Stand Against Their Employers


The pursuit of justice for fair wages from your employer starts with our skilled attorneys

An employer trying to take advantage of employees and pay them as little as possible is nothing new.  However, with the economic difficulties, and shrinking labor budgets, the employers have gone out of their way more than ever to minimize wages and are often breaking labor laws in the process. Our attorneys at Hepworth, Gershbaum & Roth, PLLC hold businesses accountable when they violate State and federal labor laws. We have recovered tens of millions of dollars from employers for violating the rights of employees and underpaying them for their work.

What types of wage claim disputes are most common throughout the country?

There are many ways a business can violate the Fair Labor Standards Act and state laws to underpay employees. The most common forms of underpayment of wages arise from employees not being clocked in for time they spend doing tasks for the company. It is a violation of both New York and federal laws to deny pay to an employee for all time spent performing tasks for the company. For many people, this unpaid labor translates to not getting paid the overtime they deserve, or averaging an hourly rate that is significantly less than the minimum wage. One of our lawyers in New York City will review your work situation and explain your legal rights. We have a great success rate for recovery for clients because we offer you sound legal guidance and determine your best course of action.

What can a New York wage and hour attorney do for you to get the full compensation you deserve?

Legal disputes over wages and hours are generally complex and fact specific this requires knowing where to look to find evidence of underpayment.  Our experienced New York wage claims attorneys often obtain and review all of the employer’s business records to uncover as many wage and hour violations as possible. Often we are able to uncover and prove more violations than our clients previously estimated. This translates to even more unpaid wages owed and more justice for you. If you file a wage and hour dispute against an employer you may be able to recover:

  • Back wages

  • Interest

  • Statutory fines

  • Attorney’s fees

  • Costs associated with the case

  • Punitive damages
