A Breakdown of Wage and Hour Abuse by Industry

At Braverman Law, we represent all kinds of employees in and around New York. However, while violations of minimum wage and overtime laws can occur in any employment setting, certain industries and job positions are particularly prone to abuse by employers. For that reason, we want to highlight the sectors of the economy where we find that illegal employment practices are most commonly occurring.

Jobs prone to wage and hour violation include:

  • Assistant Managers
  • Tipped Employees – Servers / Waiters / Restaurant Employees
  • Cable Installers
  • Call Center Operators
  • Delivery Drivers (often misclassified as “independent contractors”)
  • Field Engineers and Service Technicians
  • H-1B Tech Workers
  • Insurance Underwriters
  • Interns
  • IT Employees (Systems Administrators, Conversion Analysts, Systems Engineers, Business Analysts)
  • Limo Drivers
  • Loan Officers and Underwriters
  • Medical Billing Coders
  • Nurses (LPNs are not usually considered “professionals”)
  • News Reporters (particularly for community newspapers)

If you work in any of these fields, you may have a wage and hour case if you aren’t being paid hourly and being paid overtime. Call Braverman Law today at 212-206- 8166 or contact us online today to schedule an appointment to discuss your situation. Se habla español.
