YOUR RISK OF PERSONAL LIABILITY FOR WAGE & HOUR CLAIMS
The risk of liability for wage & hour claims is not limited to the entity which hired the employee.
Rather, under NYS and Federal Law, liability for wage & hour claims can also extend to individuals who serve as officers of the hiring entity, who had control over the terms and conditions of employment.
The law governing this is not clear. Accordingly, governmental agencies and plaintiff lawyers often go after the officers of the hiring entity, on the mere possibility that they might be held liable as an "employer" even though they were not the actual employer.
Personal liability can be imposed not only for wage & hour claims, but also for violations of the NYS Wage Theft Prevention Act.
The risk to individuals posed by these wage & hour claims is real and cannot be overstated.
The right NYS Wage & Hour Employment Defense Lawyer can make all the difference in defending against these wage & hour claims.
