Ways Businesses Deny Overtime Pay to Employees
In New York, some employees are exempt from overtime pay, but this designation is not along the lines most employees assume. For instances, just because you get a salary doesn’t mean you are unable to receive overtime pay.
The lack of understanding around overtime is one of the ways employers exploit their employees to get more work than they pay for out of them. Some of the most common violations include:
- Making employees work off the clock: A business may attempt to make employees work before clocking in, work through breaks, or work after they have clocked out. These off-the-clock demands are illegal in New York, and you can pursue compensation for all work you’ve done without pay.
- Misclassifying employees as exempt from overtime: Some workers are exempt from earning overtime, but that has less to do with how you are paid (salary vs. hourly wages) and more to do with the type of work you do. Management, executives, and specialists are often exempt. However, businesses will sometimes exploit uncertainty in this area to deny overtime pay. Businesses might provide a title that suggests certain responsibilities that aren’t present, or exaggerate some of your job requirements to avoid overtime pay. If you are unsure whether you should be classified as exempt, Hach & Rose, LLP can find out.
- Withholding wages: Sometimes overtime pay violations are as simple as businesses refusing to pay what is owed.
- Miscalculating overtime: Sometimes, overtime violations are genuine accidents on the part of your employer. You may still need a lawyer to help you prove the error in these cases.
Regardless of the circumstances around your unpaid overtime, if you have been denied money you’ve earned, we will fight to get that money returned to you.
