Under New York Labor Law ("NYLL") Section 191, employees within the state of New York whose job responsibilities consist of more than 25% manual labor are required to be paid on a weekly basis. New York's Department of Labor has advised that "manual labor" encompasses a countless number of physical tasks. Numerous employers within New York are violating the rights of their employees by paying them on a bi-weekly schedule. Bursor & Fisher has had significant success in recovering money for employees who were illegally paid on a bi-weekly basis.
