Wage And Hour Claim Defense In New York

Wage and hour claims are among the most frequent types of lawsuits brought by employees against their employers. In many cases, these claims are made by workers who are classified and paid as independent contractors, but would prefer to be treated as employees for the purposes of seeking unemployment insurance as well as overtime pay.
