Tacos al Suadero is a restaurant with three locations in Queens, New York, with the legal name of GAL Food Corporation. The complaint for this class action alleges that the restaurant and its owners did not pay employees for the overtime they worked, among other violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FSLA) and the New York Labor Law (NYLL).

Workers Installing Drywall

Two plaintiffs claim they did not receive all the wages they were due for drywall work in Maryland. The complaint holds Capitol Drywall, Inc., East Coast Developers, LLC, and East Coast’s owner, Gabriel Montecinos responsible for the missing payments. They are pursuing a collective action under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) as well as Washington, DC labor laws.

Women's Cosmetics

It seems that even beauty stores can have unbeautiful labor and employment practices. The complaint for this class action alleges that Ulta Salon, Cosmetics & Fragrance, Inc. violated labor laws in a host of ways, including by not paying proper minimum wages or overtime, not giving employees proper meal or rest periods or payment for missing them, and not providing proper wage statements. Most of the allegations involve violations of the California Labor Code.

Example of Rolling Door

ABC Corporation does business in the Bronx as A&G Gates & Rolling Doors. The complaint for this collective action contends that A&G, like too many companies, failed to pay its workers proper overtime pay, thus violating the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and New York Labor Law (NYLL). Also, the complaint claims that when an employee pressed for his rights, the company retaliated by firing him. 

Food Plate from Sophie's Cuban Cuisine

Some people receive tips as part of their work—waiters and delivery persons, for example. Employers may take a “tip credit” and pay these workers less than the minimum wage for their tipped duties. However, the complaint for this class action claims that two Sophie’s Cuban Cuisine restaurants paid workers less for non-tipped duties as well. Also, the complaint claims that the employers violated other federal and state labor laws as well. 

Manhattan Diner Facade

Employers sometimes try to pay employees less by hiring them for one kind of work and then requiring them to do another kind of work at the same wage. The complaint for this class action claims that workers at Manhattan Diner (officeially Karpenisi Rest, Inc.) were hired as tipped workers but made to do other non-tipped work. The complaint also alleges that their employers did not pay for all hours worked or pay proper overtime and that they violated other provisions of the FLSA and NYLL.
