However, failure to comply with these complex Federal and New York State wage and labor laws and regulations can seriously harm what you & your Company have worked so hard to build.

New York Labor Law requires all non-exempt employees be paid time and one half for all hours worked more than 40 hours per week. It also sets forth detailed rules governing which employees are deemed exempt. It also requires the employer to maintain detailed employment records showing that all required payments are made.
The FLSA imposes comparable requirements on employers and uses similar definitions in determining whether an employee is exempt or not.
Under laws recently passed, New York wage and labor laws also requires NY company & business employers furnish detailed written notice ot each employee as to how much he/she will be paid.
The laws also require that each employee receive detailed wage statements at each pay period.
New York State Labor Law further imposes severe penalties for failure to comply with these notice requirements.
Nor is the liability for these damages and penalties limited to the business, company or corporation. Rather both the FLSA and New York State Labor Law can impose liability against individual officers of the company or corporation.
