The Law is Clear: You Deserve the Pay You Have Earned
The federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) strictly governs the way employers are required to account for wages, salary and benefits. Many employers, however, take advantage of workers who are unfamiliar with the regulations. Money-saving tactics such as trading overtime pay for time off or placing a worker on salary to avoid hourly wages are commonplace.
If you think your employer has cheated you out of earnings, talk to one of the experienced labor law attorneys at VKV. Our lawyers have been involved in thousands of cases relating to federal FLSA and New York state wage and hour laws. We are a law firm you can rely on for aggressive representation for your cause. We are comfortable to talk to and we understand the difficult position your employer has put you in by not obeying the law.
We represent workers who have suffered FLSA violations such as:
- Underpayment of wages earned and other paycheck errors
- Minimum wage violations
- Overtime violations
- Misclassification as a salary employee
- Illegal classification as a contract worker
- Denied breaks, insufficient time for meal period
Individual and Class Action Lawsuits
In many cases, you are not alone. If you have a grievance against your employer’s wage and hour policies, chances are other workers at your company suffer the same violations. You may be part of a class or collective action lawsuit that seeks significant financial damages for compensation.
