New York state leads nation in returned pay for wage theft cases

Workers can face a range of negative repercussions if they do not receive the compensation they are owed for their services. Unfortunately, many people feel afraid to confront their employers over serious issues like wage theft due to potential retaliation, but violating wage and hour laws is illegal. Employers should be held accountable, and employees should understand their legal rights to address such wrongdoing.

Examples of FMLA requirements

At some point in the course of their employment, many New York workers need time off from work. While sick days or vacation days may be able to cover some individuals' needs, others may have conditions or family members with conditions that result in a need for more time off. In many cases, the Family and Medical Leave Act, or FMLA, can help.

Employment discrimination: Worker demoted, fired for disability

Many people with disabilities often have the capabilities to hold jobs and to perform their jobs well. In addition to likely enjoying their work, they often need the income to help address expenses associated with their disabilities. As a result, when a worker faces employment discrimination due to a disability, his or her life could face several negative impacts.
