If you believe your employer failed to comply with New York’s labor and employment laws and wish to file a complaint, you can do so with the New York Department of Labor. Most NY employees are protected by the state’s laws and prohibit any employer from doing any of the following:
- Paying less than minimum wage standards.
- Wrongfully terminating an employee for reasons that go against their contract.
- If an employer sexually abuses an employee.
- Being fired as a form of retaliation for filing a complaint or reporting an employer.
- Doesn’t provide its workers with a safe and hazard free environment.
- Fails to provide an employee with the benefits they are required to or have agreed to in their contract.
It is important that your rights are exercised in the event they are violated by an employer, and our New York employment and labor law attorneys can assure this happens. If your employer engaged in one or more of the above acts or failed to comply with another state law, we want to help you find the legal counsel that can help you get a claim or lawsuit filed.
