Overtime Claims

Under New York City, State and Federal laws, certain employees are entitled to overtime pay. It is illegal for your employer to fail to pay you overtime if you are entitled to receive it. If you work over 40 hours per week, you are likely entitled to overtime pay, which is equal to time and one-half for every hour worked over 40 hours each week. Overtime applies even to those who are paid a salary, in some cases. If your employer violated laws requiring overtime pay, you may also be entitled to liquidated or double damages for overtime violations.

If you believe that you are entitled to overtime pay that you have not received, click here to learn more, or call an Overtime Wage Lawyer at Slater Slater Schulman LLP today for a free consultation at (212) 922-0906.

Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment is illegal under New York City, State and Federal laws. To that end, you are entitled to work in an environment that prohibits sexual harassment. Sexual harassment can be either verbal or physical harassment, and it can consist of unwanted sexual advancements, requests for sexual favors, crude or suggestive remarks of a sexual nature, or even inappropriate touching. Sexual harassment can involve a male or female victim, and it can involve colleagues of either the same or different sex.

If you have been the victim of sexual harassment in the workplace, you may be entitled to compensation.
