Under New York Law, New Jersey Law and the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) non exempt employees are entitled to overtime when working over 40 hours per week as well as a minimum wage rate of $7.25/hour in New Jersey and $8.00/hour in New York, which is scheduled to increase to $9.00/hour over the course of the next two years. If you believe your wages have been wrongfully withheld or that you are a victim of questionable wage and hour practices in New York or New Jersey, you may be entitled to compensation of up to three times what you are owed. These claims require immediate attention as there is a statute of limitations period that restricts the period of your claim.
