What We Do

New York Labor and
Employment Lawyers

Overtime Pay and Wage Theft

The Fair Labor Standards Act has been on the books since 1938, but only recently have workers been actively pursuing their right to minimum wage and overtime pay.  Overtime and minimum wage lawsuits have surged in recent years, and currently comprise approximately 10% of the federal court docket in New York and that number is rising.

Over the last ten years, Lou Pechman has established a reputation as the “go to” litigator for overtime and wage theft cases.  He has litigated over 200 cases in this specialized area of the law.  Lou moderates an annual program on “How to Handle a Wage and Hour Case” at New York County Lawyers Association and is a frequent lecturer on overtime pay topics to business groups.

On the employee side, Pechman Law Group has represented waiters, construction workers, exotic dancers, brokers, salespersons, nannies, cooks, building superintendents, deliverymen and business analysts in wage and overtime disputes.  The many employers we have defended in wage and overtime lawsuits include restaurants, messenger companies, construction companies, advertising agencies, hedge funds, engineering firms and retail stores.  We also counsel and provide guidance on best practices to our management clients so that they avoid overtime and wage theft lawsuits.
