Whitney Bascome and Destiny Crespo v. RDSL Urban NY LLC, d/b/a Open Loop, New York, Case No. 15-cv-05822

On July 24, 2015, Lead Plaintiffs Whitney Bascome and Destiny Crespo, on behalf of themselves and those similarly situated, filed a class and collective action lawsuit in the United States District Court – Southern District vs. RDSL Urban NY LLC, d/b/a Open Loop New York. The complaint alleges as follows: Ms. Bascome began working for Defendant as a non-managerial ticket agent in or around February of 2015. Throughout her employment with defendant, Plaintiff Bascome’s regular schedule had her working 84 hours per week for Defendant. Ms. Crespo began working for Defendant as a non-managerial ticket agent on or around May 11, 2015. Plaintiff Crespo’s regular schedule had her generally working at least thirty-two hours per week but often she worked as many as fifty-six hours per week. Through a vast majority of Plaintiffs’ employment with Defendant, their regular rate of pay was less than one and one-half times the minimum wage rate for every hour they worked and Defendant failed to keep adequate records of the hours Plaintiffs worked each week. Defendant also failed to pay Plaintiffs proper minimum wage and failed to provide Plaintiffs with a weekly stipend to cover costs of maintaining their uniform as required by New York Labor Law and New York Compensation Codes Rules and Regulations. Defendants failed to pay Plaintiff the proper overtime compensation at the statutorily-required overtime rate of pay for any hour that they worked per week over forty hours as the New York Labor Law, New York Compensation Codes Rules and Regulations, and the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act require. In addition, Defendants failed to furnish Plaintiffs with accurate wage statements on each payday, or with proper wage notices on an annual basis as required by the New York Labor Law.
