We have an active practice litigating on behalf of groups of employees who have been unlawfully denied overtime pay or other compensation required by wage and hour laws.
For example, we successfully litigated against Pepsi Bottling Group for a recovery of approximately $30 million on behalf of truck drivers who were unlawfully denied overtime pay.
We also brought suit against Wal-Mart for systematically exploiting janitors who cleaned its stores, by violating their rights to a minimum wage and other basic labor law protections.
In prosecuting such cases, the firm draws on its expertise in labor and employment matters, the skills of its seasoned litigators, and its experience in handling complex litigation.
Our current cases include wage and hour actions against:
- Royal Coach Diner (Sanchez v. Paxos, 15-cv-5880 (S.D.N.Y.)).
- AJA Carwash Inc. (Yax v. Obhan, 15-cv-04425 (E.D.N.Y.)).
- Clean Image, Inc. (Veras v. Clean Image, 15-cv-00255 (S.D.N.Y).
- Masonry Services, Inc. (Mauricio v. MSI, 14-cv-2657 (E.D.N.Y.)).
