  • Working less than 4 hours New York

    I have been looking through both federal and state labor laws and I can't find where it states that if you work less than fours hours in a day, your employer has to pay you for a full four hours worth of work. I am 99% positive this law exists but I don't know if it is a federal or state law.

    It's a state law and it's only a state law in a very few states. Most states do not have such a law and in those that do, it's not always four hours.

    Although I believe that NY does have a law, I don't have a link to it. Mlane? Robb?
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
