Employees in New York are protected by some of the strongest labor laws in the country. While employment in New York is "at will" unless the employment contract states otherwise, New York law strongly protects employees from discrimination, underpayment of wages, workplace safety issues, and breaches of employment contracts and collective bargaining agreements. Many of these laws impose technical notice requirements that employers are unaware of, such as the notice of pay rate requirement in New York Labor Law 195. Since these statutes often award penalties, interest, liquidated damages, and attorneys' fees to prevailing plaintiffs, New York employers are often targeted in frivolous employment litigation actions.
