Wage & Hour Issues for Employers

As an employer, you are generally subject to federal and state laws regarding wages, hours, and other employee compensation-related matters. State and federal laws regarding these issues may differ. However, the law that is more beneficial for employees generally takes priority. 

Wage and hour laws and regulations can be complex and have become a common issue that businesses face. These issues can lead to disputes, claims, and time-consuming, stressful, and expensive lawsuits. Having comprehensive policies and procedures that create compliance with wage and hour laws is as important as having an experienced wage and hour attorney for your defense against allegations of employment law violations. 

A critical factor in avoiding wage and hour violation claims lies in your payroll procedures. Having proper and effective payroll procedures can ensure that you are compliant with state and federal law. In New York, employers are generally required to comply with the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the various wage and hour regulations established in New York State Labor Law. Additionally, extensive regulations can also fall under the U.S. Department of Labor and the New York State Department of Labor. It is important to understand which of all of these regulations apply to your business and how to implement the correct policies for compliance.
