Nassau County woman sues under Fair Labor Standards Act

A good employment relationship relies on trust. Bosses and owners have to be able to believe each other's promises and know the ways to find recourse if words are not kept. Fortunately, federal and state laws protect employees in New York from suffering excess losses in or failing to receive compensation.

Why employers may have an easier time proving overtime exemptions

Earlier this year, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a pivotal ruling in the case of Encino Motorcars, LLC v. Navarro.

Is your age holding you back at work?

Older workers should be prized for their depth of life experience, their years on the job, their wide knowledge base and their seasoned ability to cope with change. Some people just see age as a negative number, though, not understanding the many benefits that come with working with colleagues over the age of 40. This can lead to workplace discrimination against older workers, laying them off, refusing to hire them, or refusing due advancement opportunities in favor of "younger blood" in the company.

Some wage and hour violations may be the result of an oversight, while others may be intentional. Unfortunately, many workers continue to trudge through their work duties without a full understanding about their right to be paid for all of the hours they work, including their right to overtime pay.
