Comp Time

New York Comp Time Violation Claims

Comp Time

Wage and hour laws are designed to protect workers from employers. Whether you are protected by the wage and hour laws depends on several factors, including whether you are an exempt or non-exempt employee, what your job duties are, and your salary.

Comp time is a term used to describe allowing an employee take time off at a later date in exchange for overtime work performed, rather than paying that employee the proper compensation (typically time and a half). In most instances, it is illegal for your employer to force you to take comp time rather than pay you overtime wages.

Leeds Brown Law, P.C., has represented thousands of employees in mediation and litigation on a number of employment law issues, including comp-time violations of the wage and hour laws. Our efforts have resulted in millions of dollars in monetary and non monetary compensation for these employees.
