Wage and Hour Claims | Sexual Harassment | Minimum Wage Violations | Misclassification of Workers | Overtime Pay Violations

Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), a federal law, employers are prohibited from engaging in certain activities that negatively impact how a worker is paid. The FLSA governs a wide range of employer practices, from the denial of mandatory breaks to refusal to pay overtime when earned, from the misclassification of employees as exempt to the denial of termination pay. If your employer has wrongfully denied you compensation you are owed, the Brooklyn Employment Lawyers at Leeds Brown Law, P.C., can help.
