Handling Overtime Pay Disputes for Workers in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut
Proven Employment Law Attorneys in New York City
State and federal wage and hour laws require that New York employers pay certain “non-exempt” workers at a higher rate for any hours worked over 40 hour in a given week (44 hours per week for some residential workers). As a general rule, the rate required for overtime is 1 ½ times the normal hourly rate of pay. Far too often, however, employers try to skirt the rules regarding overtime compensation, wrongfully classifying an employee as exempt or attempting to force workers to carry overtime hours into a succeeding week. If your employer has failed to properly pay you for overtime worked, the Law Office of Justin A. Zeller can protect your rights.

Zealous Representation in Overtime Violations Claims
We aggressively advocate for workers who have been wrongfully been denied overtime pay, handling situations where:
- An employer wrongfully tells you that you’re an “exempt” employee, and not subject to overtime requirements
- Your employer consistently asks you to perform additional tasks before you punch in or after you’ve punched out
- Your employer ignores your requests for overtime pay, or wrongfully asserts that you are not eligible because you didn’t keep proper records (state and federal law impose that duty on employers)
