Representing Employees in Unpaid Wage Claims
For over the past 5 years we have successfully represented employees in all aspects of wage and hour law. We represent a variety of individuals for unpaid overtime, unpaid minimum wages, unpaid tips and failure to pay in accordance with the New York Prevailing Wage Law.
We have successfully ensured that waiters, construction workers, manicurists, cooks, dishwashers and busboys receive their unpaid wages and unpaid tips.
Representative cases in overtime disputes include:
» A six figure settlement on behalf of three porters against a well known catering company with locations in New York City and Long Island.
» A $85,000 settlement on behalf of one cook and two waitresses against a well regarded bakery and restaurant in Queens, New York.
» A $275,000 settlement against a drug store company on behalf of two cashiers.
» A $75,000 bench trial verdict in favor of a former kitchen employee against a pizza restaurant in Manhattan.
On the management side, we have efficiently represented nail salons, construction companies, hardware companies and restaurants. We are able to resolve the majority of our management side cases prior to the commencement of litigation so as to ensure that our clients do not spend a significant amount on attorney fees. It is our philosophy that an early settlement in a wage and hour case usually results in the best possible outcome for our management side clients, as this allows them to focus on running their business.
Small Business Representation
The Law Offices of Jacob Aronauer also represents small businesses. Our representation encompasses wage and hour compliance along with litigation. We understand the financial constrains of small businesses. Accordingly, we work diligently with our management side clients to develop a game plan that is financially feasible for both sides. We represent nail salons, restaurants, construction companies and hardware companies.
Our lawyers represent clients exclusively in employment related litigation. We have successfully represented small businesses in employment related matters in federal and state courts as well as the New York State Department of Labor as well as in arbitration and mediation.
While we have the experience and ability to defend small businesses through trial and appeal, we recognize that a take-no-prisoners approach to litigation is not always in our clients’ best interests. We pride ourselves in our ability to find the best solution for each particular wage and hour dispute.
