It's close to impossible to run a small business in New York these days. Rules, regulations, taxes, and insurance create a terrible burden on businesspeople trying to build a future for themselves and their families.
No solo su lugar de trabajo puede ser peligroso-su empleador puede ser un peligro para sus derechos legales. Los trabajadores de la construcción son especialmente vulnerables a ser clasificados erróneamente por sus empleadores como contratistas independientes.
It's not only your workplace that might be unsafe-your employer may be a hazard to your legal rights. Construction workers are especially vulnerable to being misclassified by their employers as independent contractors.
We have a zero-tolerance approach to employers who refuse to pay the legal minimum wage, or who don't pay proper overtime wages, or who bully or take advantage in any way of New York's working men and women when it comes to wages, overtime, tipped wage credits for restaurant workers. I'm very proud and gratified to report our recent victories:
A working man or woman in New York who puts in an honest day's work expects and deserves an honest--and legal--day's pay. It's unforgiveable when employers fail--or outright refuse--to pay at least the legal minimum wage, or overtime, or who abuse break time and other workers' rights. We fight against this illegal and immoral behaviour, and we don't let our defendants off the hook until we have satisfaction for our clients.
