Up-to-date wage payment policies help employers avoid lawsuits

Employers in the New York area who do not have up-to-date wage payment policies would do well to give the matter serious thought in light of a recent court case heard in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana. In the case, an employee who worked as branch administrator sued her employer, alleging that the defendant failed to pay the plaintiff for overtime hours worked and further failed to classify her as exempt under the standards set forth in the Fair Labor Standards Act.

Restaurants face growing scrutiny for wage and hour law problems

Restaurants in New York, especially those that provide delivery services, could benefit from a review of their payment practices. Legal complaints from drivers for pizza restaurants have been on the rise because of alleged violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act. Although the law does not directly state how delivery drivers should be compensated, lawsuits generally claim that drivers did not receive pay that equaled minimum wage.
