My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: New York
I was let go Friday due to lack of work. My company owes me three months of "foreman's allowance" which adds up to $2,250. Normally the monies are dispersed monthly. For the last year, I have technically been on the payroll of another company that we are in joint venture with on a few projects. My expense checks still came from the original company but now they were checks for two months worth.
I received Jan & Feb 2010 ($1500). I was expecting Mar & April 2010 in the first week of May and never received it. On the last working day of May I was let go.
In my research this is what I found:
Section 198-c (3) of the New York State Labor Law excludes from wage supplement coverage those persons in an administrative,
executive or professional capacity whose earnings exceed $900 gross per week
I am a union carpenter, I held the title of Foreman. The monies were allotted in lieu of a company pickup. They were to cover cost of my personal vehicle, fuel and tolls. Does the above apply to me?
I have not made and official inquiry about obtaining the money owed. I'm trying to gather all information before I make any calls.
Thanks in advance,
