Wage and Hour Violations | Employment Discrimination and Harassment Claims | Overtime Pay | Misclassification of Workers | Denial of Minimum Wage | Off the Clock Work

Have you been asked by your employer to take work home, or to stay after you have punched off the clock (without pay)? Have you been denied regular breaks, including the opportunity to take time for a meal? The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), a federal statute, provides protection to workers across the United States. If your employer has attempted to get you to work without pay, or has refused to pay you wages rightfully earned, the attorneys at Leeds Brown Law, PC, can help.

At Leeds Brown Law, PC, we bring more than 30 years of experience to women and men who have been wrongfully treated on the job, including victims of wage and hour violations. We aggressively fight for the rights of people across the state of New York, including Staten Island. We base our successful employment law practice on a commitment to hard work and thorough preparation, as well as a dedication to provide the utmost personal service and professional integrity. We know that your case is unique, and will take the time to learn the specific details of your claim, as well as your needs.

Our Staten Island Employment Law Practice

We tenaciously advocate for people whose rights under the FLSA have been violated, handling all types of wage and hour claims, including:

  • Attempts by an employer to misclassify a wage earner as an exempt employee to avoid paying overtime
  • Denial of regular breaks, or deduction of time for breaks when breaks are not allowed
  • Failure or refusal to pay minimum wage or overtime
  • Requiring workers to perform duties off the clock
  • Failure to pay earned termination pay

Our lawyers also protect the rights of victims of discrimination or harassment in the workplace, whether based on race, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation, or religion or creed.
