Shari Tepperman v. J&S Kidswear, Inc., d/b/a Denny’s Childrenswear, Case No: 15-CV-07113

On December 14, 2015, Lead Plaintiff Shari Tepperman, on behalf of herself and those similarly situated, filed a class and collective action lawsuit in United States District Court – Eastern District of New York vs. J&S Kidswear Inc., d/b/a Denny’s Childrenswear, a popular local children’s clothing store. The complaint alleges as follows: Ms. Tepperman began working for Defendants around July of 2010 through December 2013. She alleges that she works forty-six hours per week from May through February each year and fifty-four hours per week in March and April of each year through her employment. During her employment, Defendants intentionally misclassified Plaintiff as an exempt employee in order to not pay Plaintiff the proper overtime compensation at the statutorily-required overtime rate of pay for any hour that she 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 Ms. Tepperman with accurate wage statements on each payday as the NYLL requires.
