Wage and hour violations in the construction industry are not uncommon. Under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act, as well as New York labor laws, employers must provide construction workers with overtime pay, rest breaks and other benefits. When the rights of construction employees are trampled on, our attorneys at The Klein Law Group, P.C., aggressively pursue wage and hour claims for those employed in the industry.
Whether you work in new construction, reconstruction or remodeling of buildings, in road work, painting, or another construction-related job, you have rights. Speak to our knowledgeable attorneys as soon as possible if you believe your employer has cheated you out of wages or other benefits.
New York Construction Industry Fair Play Act
All construction employees, contractors and subcontractors are protected from wage and hour mistreatment by the New York Construction Industry Fair Play Act. The act states that employers in the construction industry cannot consider workers as independent contractors unless they meet certain criteria. If your employer has misclassified you as an independent contractor to avoid paying you overtime, our lawyers can help you pursue a wage and hour claim and fight for compensation.
