$45k recovered overtime wages for NYC receptionist

Background: A receptionist who worked for a small company in New York City came to us complaining that her boss was making her work very long hours. She was paid a flat salary of about $55,000 a year. Her boss expected her to respond to both his emails and client emails after hours, and she was expected to work from 8-6 in the office.


Outcome: We were able to show that she was misclassified as an exempt employee and should have been paid overtime for any hours she worked over 40 hours in a week. Based on her email activity and text messages, we were able to show that she worked significantly over 40 hours a week, and we ended up recovering approximately $45,000 for her in unpaid overtime pay.

Result:

$45,000
