“The vast majority of New York businesses comply with the state’s wage laws. For those that do not, it is important for workers that we enforce the law, and important for businesses that we level the playing field. I applaud the Department of Labor for its efforts to educate businesses and protect workers’ rights.”
-Heather C. Briccetti, Esq., president and CEO, The Business Council of New York State, Inc.
What Organizations Say
“The two people at the Department of Labor who helped me were wonderful. They helped me understand the situation and kept me informed. I was exhilarated when I got that check. That felt really good. When I got my money I called them and told them how grateful I was. It was a great experience. When a person is entitled by law to something, the employer is supposed to follow those guidelines. I’d recommend that anyone in the same situation contact the Department of Labor.”
-Renata Zhuravskaya, wage theft victim from Brooklyn
