Has your employer violated the FLSA by shorting you on pay?

In order to earn a living, you, like many other New York residents, have to go to work and have someone else tell you what to do all day. This activity may not be your favorite, but overall, you enjoy your job and want to do your best to earn your paycheck. What you undoubtedly do not enjoy, however, is noticing mistakes with your pay.

Former Amazon warehouse employee claims wrongful termination

New York employers large and small can be accused of wrongdoing by disgruntled workers. This can spark allegations that wrongful termination and other violations of employment law took place. Because there are so many companies that function not just in one location, but have employees across the country, some of the larger companies can be accused of committing illegal acts with employees based simply on policies that are in place for everyone and emanate from the corporate headquarters. Although it is not a popular sentiment in the era of workers being granted improved rights, employers have rights too. When there is a lawsuit against a company, they must have a strong defense from a law firm that understands their perspective.

New Yorkers will try as hard as they can to balance their work and family lives. In many situations, this can be difficult. Laws are in place to prevent employers from practicing illegal workplace discrimination and holding employees back from advancement, dismissing them or violating other areas of their employee rights. Still, despite greater attention being paid to the topic and people asserting their rights, some employers continue to put company interests ahead of employee well-being and what is legal.

Understanding law for wages is key for employers

In New York and across the nation, the public is inundated with stories about employees being mistreated. While workers have the right to receive everything they are entitled to under the law, be free from workplace discrimination and not be subjected to mistreatment, employers have rights, too. When there are allegations that employers have violated the law, it is critical to have legal advice from a firm that understands both sides of the dispute.

Office workers claim employee rights were violated by harassment

Although the current climate in New York State and across the nation has made is easier for employees who have been subjected to various forms of harassment - sexual harassment and otherwise - to file a claim to protect their employee rights and receive compensation, it is still happening. One positive note of the growing acceptance of employment claims is that workers in many industries and types of jobs can come forward regarding how they have been mistreated. When considering a complaint, having legal assistance is a foundational requirement.
