Smajlaj v. Pritchard Industries, Inc. Case No.: 1:18-cv-02243

moneyOn March 13, 2018, Lead Plaintiff Mr. Smajlaj, on behalf of himself and those similarly situated, filed a class and collective action lawsuit in United States District Court – Eastern District of New York against his employer, Pritchard Industries, Inc. The complaint alleges as follows:

Mr. Smajlaj began working for Defendant -- a building services and facility maintenance provider -- as a building maintenance worker from about December 1993 until his termination on March 2, 2016. For at least the six-year period pre-dating this action’s commencement through his last day of work, Defendant typically required Plaintiff, an hourly employee, to work extended shifts on many days, in addition to his regularly scheduled workweek of at least forty hours. However, Defendant often failed to pay Mr. Smajlaj at any rate of pay, and thus not at the statutorily required rate of time and one-half his straight-time rate for those hours worked during extended shifts that brought his weekly hours worked in excess of forty. In addition to violating the FLSA’s and NYLL’s overtime provisions, Defendant also violated the NYLL by failing to provide Plaintiff with accurate wage statements on each payday.
