Know Your Rights

New York State employers must pay their employees who qualify as manual workers every week. They have seven days from the day you worked to pay you for the work you did. But this only applies to people that are classified as manual workers. In general, anyone that stands on their feet for most of their job is a manual worker. For example, a retail or restaurant worker. They could sit when the store is empty, or the restaurant is slow so they roll napkins. But for at least 25% of their job they are on their feet moving, lifting, stocking shelves, taking inventory, or doing something else active like customer service work.
