Overtime Claims

One of the major issues in American labor law right now is the protection of employee rights with regard to receiving overtime pay.  Under New York City, State and Federal laws, certain employees are entitled to overtime pay, and failure of an employer to pay overtime is illegal.  Employees who are unfairly docked this benefit have important rights.  If you work over forty (40) hours per week you are likely entitled to time and one-half overtime for every hour worked over forty (40) hours each week, even if you are paid a salary. You may also be entitled to liquidated or double damages for overtime violations.

Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment is illegal under New York City, State and Federal laws.  It occurs where an employee experiences unfair and/or unwanted treatment as a result of their gender.  Sexual harassment can consist of unwanted sexual advancements, crude or suggestive remarks of a sexual nature, or even inappropriate touching.  It can be verbal as well as physical.  Where harassment persists against the victim’s protests, where the harassment interferes with an employee’s ability to do his or her job, or where it creates a hostile or offensive work environment for the employee, that employee has important legal rights and can and should seek to enforce them.

While it may be hard or uncomfortable to come forward and complain about sexual harassment, doing so may be the only way to stop it.   If you have been the victim of sexual harassment in the workplace, you may be entitled to compensation.

Employment Discrimination

Illegal discrimination at work happens every day.  When an employee suffers at work and this adverse action is based on characteristics unrelated to their work abilities, he or she may be protected under state and federal laws prohibiting these actions.

To have legal protection from discrimination, you must be a member of a protected class of people.   Protected class members may suffer from:

There are strong remedies under New York City, State and Federal law which serve to protect employees from illegal discrimination.  These may include:

  • Financial damages against one’s employer
  • The right to recover lost and future earnings and benefits
  • The right to recover money for emotional distress
  • Where there is “willful” discrimination by the company, punitive damages may apply
  • Interest on all unpaid earnings and benefits
  • Reinstatement of lost position
  • The payment of legal fees
