New Collective Action in the Southern District Of New York

Anel Noel v. Fairway Group Holdings Corp., et al., Case No. 14-cv-03396

On May 8, 2014, Lead Plaintiff Anel Noel on behalf of himself and all other similarly situated filed a class and collective class action lawsuit in United States District Court – Southern District of New York vs. Fairway Group Holdings Corp., Fairway Bakery LLC, Fairway Red Hook LLC, Fairway Broadway LLC, Fairway Chelsea, LLC, Fairway East 86th Street LLC, Fairway Hudson Yards, LLC, Fairway Kips Bay LLC, Fairway Nanuet LLC, Fairway Uptown LLC, Fairway Westbury LLC, Fairway Pelham LLC, FW Plainview LLC, Fairway Douglaston, LLC, Fairway Lake Grove LLC, Fairway Stamford LLC, Fairway Stamford Wines & Spirits LLC, Fairway Paramus LLC, Fairway Woodland Park LLC, William Sanford, Howard Glickeone, Herb Ruetsch, and Rick Garcia. Defendants initially hired Plaintiff as a security guard and later titled Plaintiff’s job as “Assistant Security Manager” at the Red Hook, New York location of a Fairway grocery store. Mr. Noel alleges that Defendants titled him as a “manager” so that they did not have to pay him overtime wages, when in actuality he did not have any supervisory authority over other employees. Indeed, Mr. Noel worked nine to eleven hours per day between five to six days per week for a total of at least fifty-two hours per week, but Defendants only paid him for the first forty hours he worked and sometimes falsely reported his hours on his pay stubs in violation of New York Labor Law, New York Compensation Codes Rules and Regulations and the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act. If any person worked for any of the stores or individuals named as a Defendant in the lawsuit during the time period of May 8, 2008 – May 8, 2014 or has information that may be relevant to this case, contact Borrelli & Associates, P.L.L.C. as soon as possible through our website,, or any of our phone numbers: (516) 248 - 5550, (516) ABOGADO, and (212) 679 - 5000.
