Not everyone benefits from New York's new minimum wage

Lawmakers and news sources alike proclaimed that New York was the first state to establish a $15 minimum wage—which is now the highest in the country. And while raising the minimum wage is a significant benefit for many workers, it may not affect everyone the same.

Motor Carrier Exemption leaves truck drivers out of overtime pay

A judge in New York’s Eastern district recently dismissed claims by employees of an armored truck company that their employer was violating federal overtime laws. The court found that because the employees’ job duties fell under the FLSA’s Motor Carrier Exemption, they were not entitled to overtime pay.

Manipulating start times for employees violates federal law

A restaurant in North Carolina became a cautionary tale this week when the U.S. Department of Labor cracked down on their policies regarding start times for employees. The restaurant was required to pay over $53,000 in back pay to their tipped employees, who were not allowed to clock in until the first customer of the day walked through the door. An investigation by the Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour division found unrecorded work time that violated minimum wage laws, as well as a practice of paying cooks flat salaries – which violated overtime laws.

Sponsor agencies agree to $65.5 million for underpaid au pairs

Quality, affordable childcare can be very difficult to find in New York. As such, many people favor the idea of welcoming an au pair into their home. Au pairs, unlike nannies and other childcare providers, are usually young women who live in foreign countries but have special authorization to work in the U.S. Through the program, they receive room and board from their host families.

What you should know if you work on a holiday

The holiday season is in full swing, and while many people have time off from work and take vacations, that is not the case for everyone. For some people, working on the holidays is unavoidable; for others, working on the holidays is a great way to earn some extra money.
