Retaliation for Complaints
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.
A class action filed against trucking company CRST Expedited alleges that the company permits a hostile work environment in which female drivers are sexually harassed, touched, and sometimes assaulted by male drivers, violating the Civil Rights Act and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act.
