New York Overtime Lawyer Q&A

above-the-bar-logo-no12.jpgOur Overtime Pay Lawyers have been answering questions about proper and improper compensation pay practices for years. A common question our New York Employment Lawyers receive is whether an employer can simply “promote” an employee to a “manager” title to avoid paying overtime. In short, the answer is no, if the employee is not really working as a manager. The employee must be managing two or more employees and actively managing the operations of the business with the power to hire, fire and make decisions. This is just one example of how unscrupulous employers try to avoid paying overtime. Call our experienced Overtime Pay Attorneys at (800) 893-9645 to answer your specific questions.
