Employee Wage And Benefit Disputes

Employees working in New York have rights when it comes to their pay and benefits, thanks to the Fair Labor Standards Act and the New York Minimum Wage and Hours Act. The law firm of Weinstein, Kaplan & Cohen, P.C., based in Nassau County, Long Island, represents workers throughout New York seeking to assert their wage and hour benefit rights.

Wage And Benefit Disputes Law Firm

Common workplace wage and benefit violations include:

  • Employee misclassification
  • Failure to honor overtime pay
  • Lack of rightful meal and rest breaks

Though frustrating, workers have the right to seek damages in court for lost wages and other damages when their employers violate the law. Our attorneys are experienced in wage and hour litigation, working both with employees and business owners. Often, co-workers who have experienced similar violations of their rights band together to form a class in order to sue.

Stopping Employer Bad Behavior

Besides obtaining the wages and benefits they are owed, another reason employees file litigation is to expose their employer's mistreatment and make sure they change their practices. Our law firm levels the playing field against some of the largest and most powerful companies in the New York City metropolitan area. Because we also represent employers in wage and benefit matters, we know how the opposing parties' lawyers operate, giving us a unique advantage.
