The short answer is no. There is no law in NY that requires an employer to have an internal appeals process for disciplinary actions. Employers should establish personnel policies and practices that cover key areas of hiring, employment, discipline and termination, but it is not required.
Before answering your question definitively, you would need to provide more information. You should talk to a plaintiffs' employment lawyer. Many attorneys provide free consultations concerning wage issues.

It is unfortunate that your employer will not voluntarily honor your request. Because you do not work more than six hours in a shift, your employer can require you to work the shift without a meal break.
Generally, no. Employees in New York State are presumed to be “at-will,” meaning that the employment relationship can be terminated at any time for any reason, by either the employee or the employer, unless there is a law or contractual agreement to the contrary.
New York law requires employers to provide most employees a thirty-minute meal break when working more than six hours a day. See https://dol.ny.gov/day-rest-and-meal-periods.

I haven’t worked for a full week as an hourly pay, part time employee and they sent me home early today even though there was work to be done it was just corporate telling them to cut hours but they did not give me 24 hour notice. they gave me 1 hour notice from when they wanted me to leave.

I started Monday I worked Monday and Tuesday total of 16hours and they didn't send me my w-2 or paperwork until last night today I decided the job was too much on my body so I quit do they still have to pay me for the hours I put in even though I didn't get to fill out the paperwork?
You are entitled to be paid for all hours that you worked, even if you had not completed your paperwork when you performed the work.
