On Monday, December 4, 2017, 11:00 a.m., New York City and State prosecutors will announce criminal charges in multiple cases involving stolen wages, provide tips on spotting wage theft and reporting it to authorities. Enforcement of wage theft violators will have a great effect towards stabilizing the construction industry. Unscrupulous employers evade workers compensation, unemployment insurance, and basic payroll taxes by knowingly misclassifying workers as “independent contractors,” paying in cash off the books, and running other scams. They cost taxpayers billions, hurt honest businesses, and exploit workers.
