Experienced Employment Lawyers Handles Wage & Overtime Claims
Skilled attorneys help employees get justice
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) has been protecting employees since 1937. Under its two central provisions — the minimum wage requirement and the overtime provision — employers are obligated to pay required wages and, for non-exempt employees, pay overtime when they work for more than 40 hours in a week. At Braverman, PLLC, we are qualified to determine if you have a wage and hour or overtime claim against your employer, and we are fully prepared to obtain the payment you're owed for the work you've performed. Our firm represents clients in throughout New York and New Jersey and nationally in these and other employment law cases to ensure they are fully compensated for the work they provide.
Proven advocates represent employees in a range of wage and hour claims
Wage disputes can range from simple classification errors to complex and time-consuming cases where employers have deliberately violated the law. We will clearly and precisely explain your employment rights under state and federal law. We have recovered earnings and other damages for clients in actions related to:
- Misclassification of employees as exempt from wage and hour laws
- Unpaid overtime and sick days
- Violation of minimum wage laws
- Unpaid lunch and rest periods in violation of the law
- Independent contractor rights
- Late pay
- Unpaid reimbursement for work-related expenses
- Improper deductions
- Failure to pay for sick days
- Unpaid vacation after employment separation
Our firm strives to get workers the fair treatment and wages they are entitled to by law and for which they have been cheated out of by their employer(s).
Knowledgeable legal advisers empower employees to seek what they're owed
Even when employees know they have been underpaid, the thought of bringing a legal action against their current or former employer can be extremely intimidating. But it is important for workers to know their rights and hold their employers accountable. We are intimately familiar with both state and federal standards in wage and overtime law and have the ability and skills to file a claim against your company when they've violated your rights. Under the FLSA and state law, it is unlawful for an employer to fire or discriminate against an employee who has filed a complaint or participated in an FLSA legal proceeding. If you believe you have been retaliated against for challenging your employer’s payment practices, we will take prompt action to pursue justice on your behalf.
Skilled lawyers offer employee’s options in wage disputes
We will meticulously analyze the circumstances of your wage, hour, or overtime claim to determine whether a negotiated settlement or litigation is the better option. As a skilled negotiator, we can often reach a favorable settlement that saves you time and money, but we are always prepared to enforce your rights in litigation and through trial when needed. Regardless of your course of action, our litigation and trial experience and track record of successfully handling wage and overtime claims provide you with the security of knowing your case is being handled by a seasoned professional.
