Wage & Hour Compliance

Avoid wage and hour claims by being prepared

Wage and hour claims by employees are on the rise. The cost in time and dollars can be immense. Our experienced wage and hour attorneys are the best defense a company can have against such charges. We perform regular compliance audits, offer counsel on such issues as exemption classification, off-the-clock hours, ‎and payroll expense planning and control, and settle disputes when they arise. We frequently defend employers before the National Labor Relations Board and the Department of Labor.

Wage & hour laws change constantly

Constant changes in wage and hour law can trip up even the most prepared company. Sapir Schragin keeps our employer clients up to date on changes in federal and state laws. We explain how recent court decisions affect employers in the Hudson Valley and Greater New York.
