Workers receiving minimum wage and who work more than 10 hours in a day are entitled to an automatic extra hour of wages for that day (called "spread-of-hours" wages). This "10-hour" time frame starts when you first arrive at work for the day and end when you last leave work for the day, regardless of the hours you specifically clock in. If you receive the New York minimum wage and the time between when you first arrive for the day and when you finally leave for the day is longer than 10 hours, you should be receiving an extra hour of pay each day.
You work hard enough. If this sounds like your situation but you're not getting paid this extra hour, give us a call to make sure that you get every penny you're entitled to.
