Employers are required to keep detailed records of the hours their employees work, as well as their pay. If an employee believes he or she was wrongfully denied overtime pay or rest breaks, the employer must provide records of the employee's hours to the employee's attorney. At The Klein Law Group, P.C., we stand up for the rights of employees in the state of New York. Our highly knowledgeable employment law team can take on even the most complex wage and hour claims, and we will fight to obtain the pay and benefits you are entitled to.
NYC Hours Worked Lawyers
In New York, there are no restrictions on the number of hours an employee can work per day, with the exception of children under 18. However, in some industries, including restaurants/hotels/hospitality and factories, an employer must provide employees with at least 24 hours of rest each week.
Additionally, employees who work a shift of more than six hours must have an uninterrupted lunch period of at least half an hour during their shift. To learn more about work hours and rest breaks, please contact our firm.
Pay for holidays, sick time, personal leave or vacation is not required under the New York State Labor Law. However, if an employer has established a paid time off (PTO) policy or offers other benefits, employees must be treated equally under the company policy. If you have experienced discrimination regarding sick or vacation pay, seek legal counsel. Additional benefits may include tuition reimbursement and health insurance coverage.
