Resolving Disputes Over Minimum Wage, Misclassification And More

When you are confronting a company about a wage or hour problem, having a knowledgeable and vigorous lawyer on your side can often make a world of difference. I can uphold your rights and interests in any of the following disputes, among others:

  • Failure to pay minimum wage — Employers covered by federal law are typically required to pay workers at least $7.25 per hour. However, state law makes the minimum wage even higher. Starting in December 2016, the minimum wage for employees of large businesses was raised to $11 per hour. The minimum wage for employees of small businesses was raised to $10.50. By the end of 2019, the minimum wage will be $15 per hour. If you work for a fast food chain, you may deserve even more.
  • Overtime disputes — If you work for a federally covered employer and you are non-exempt (not salaried), you deserve to receive one and a half times your normal rate of pay for every hour of overtime you work. This means that if you worked 41 hours in a week, you deserve one hour of overtime pay. If you worked 60 hours, you deserve 20 hours of overtime pay, etc.
  • Misclassification of employees — Sometimes, employers will label someone as an "independent contractor" instead of an "employee" to cut costs. In other cases, a company will call employees "managers" even though they don't manage anything, just so that they can make them exempt from overtime. If you have questions about your classification, don't hesitate to contact the Law Office of Noah A. Kinigstein.
