Queens, New York Wage and Hour Dispute Attorneys
Your Pay and Work Time in New York Are Protected by Federal and State Law
We have state and federal laws that govern the minimum amount that workers are paid, who is paid overtime and how workers are paid. These are all in place to protect workers, ensuring that their employers treat them fairly.
Whether done unwittingly or intentionally, mistakes that employers may make include:
- Not paying the correct minimum wage
- Paying the “training wage” or “youth minimum wage” to the incorrect people or for too long
- Not paying overtime
- Incorrectly classifying employees in terms of overtime pay
- Making employees work “off the clock” and not giving them compensation
- Deducting too much for tips
- Paying employees under the table or in cash without any other benefits
- Deducting for wages paid in goods (for instance, if an employee is guaranteed a meal as part of his or her payment)
Any of these things can be actionable, and you should protect your rights. If you believe your employer has been paying you incorrectly, come tell our attorneys at Ricotta & Marks, P.C., your story. Our lawyers will listen attentively and use their knowledge of the law to determine whether or not your employer is in violation of state and federal wage and hour laws.

New York Wage and Hour Claims ? Manhattan ? Queens ? Staten Island ? Brooklyn ? The Bronx
The debate between who is salaried and who gets overtime seems to be a sticky one. If you make below a certain amount annually and your duties do not require any form of management, you are eligible for overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). If you are salaried, have management responsibilities or some other high-level duty for your company, you may not be eligible. Depending on the number of hours you put in a week, this may affect your bottom line significantly.
If you believe that your employer should be paying you overtime, we can help you pursue action against the company, including filing a claim with the FLSA. We work hard to protect your rights as an employee. Employment law is all we do, and we do it well.
