Abraham Weinstein v. Golden Knight Limousine Service Inc., et al. Case No. 16-cv-08423-NSR

New Collective Action filed in the Southern District of New York
Abraham Weinstein v. Golden Knight Limousine Service Inc., et al. Case No. 16-cv-08423-NSR

On October 28, 2016 Abraham Weinstein on behalf of himself, individually, and on behalf of all others similarly-situated, filed a class and collective action lawsuit in United States District Court – Southern District of New York vs. Golden Knight Limousine Service and Ernest A. Biele. Mr. Weinstein worked for Golden Knight as a limousine driver, shuttling passenger to and from both airport and non-airport locations. He routinely worked from as early as 4:00 am to as late as 12:00 am often in excess of 120 hours per week. Mr. Weinstein was not paid an hourly wage but a 25% commission from his passengers plus tip, which ended up being far below the standard minimum wage. As an example detailed in the complaint, one week Mr. Weinstein worked 106 hours and made $400 from commission with an extra $20 from tips averaging out to only $4.16/hour. Needless to say, the plaintiff also alleges that he was not paid an appropriate or legal overtime wage in violation of New York Labor Law, New York Compensation Codes Rules and Regulations, and the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act.
