Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and welcome. I am working on your answer and will be right back!
I am in NY and have represented both sides with the labor board. Legally and practically, you face serious exposure here. The good news the labor board will often negotiate with you and agree to a reduced amount and possible payment plan. YOu need to show good faith and some financial difficulty, as well as why the amount is not correct mathematically to secure that.
Not set up for a call. Please review my answer and reply back if I can clarify anything further.
Collect documents that show hours worked and amount paid to show you did pay correct amount, and if there is a short fall, it is very small and not intentional. Then seek to negotiate for a reduced amount based on that and financial hardship. The other option is having a local employment lawyer reach out to the labor board.
You can go back and create a table that identifies the weeks and hours worked based on your recollection.
If you agreed on set hours for certain rate, the labor board could accept a letter or affidavit to that effect. You should get credit for the payments you made.
The page shows a payment failure, so please double check on the credit card being used to pay for the answer, thanks.
