ALBANY -- During the first 10 months of 2015, New York State recouped and returned $25.1 million to approximately 22,600 workers who originally were not paid the proper minimum wage, overtime pay or fringe benefits. Of that total, $933,000 went to 2,290 workers in Western New York.

"New York has zero tolerance for worker exploitation and those who seek to deny a fair day's pay for a fair day's work," Governor Cuomo said. "We will continue to crack down on unscrupulous employers who disregard the law and ensure employees are paid what they earn."

Acting State Labor Commissioner Roberta Reardon said, "The New York State Department of Labor is committed to protecting workers. No amount of wage theft is acceptable and I urge any worker who has been victimized to come forward and file a complaint with the Department."

Anyone with questions about minimum wage or any issues related to suspected worker abuse or who would like to file a complaint, should call the Exploited Worker Task Force Hotline: 888-469-7365.
