Jose Fernandez, v. Brownie’s Café at Columbia, Inc., et al. Case No. 16-cv-08461

On November 7, 2016 Jose Fernandez 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 Brownie’s Café at Columbia, Inc. At Brownie’s café, the plaintiff worked as a cook, prepping food for clients and handing some cleaning duties. Throughout the time that Mr. Fernandez worked at Brownie’s, during the months from September to April, Steven Brown, the defendant, required Mr. Fernandez to work 5 to 6 days per week and between 12 and 17 hours per day. During his tenure, Mr. Fernandez alleges that he was never paid at the federally and state mandated minimum overtime rate as per the New York Labor Law, New York Compensation Codes Rules and Regulations, and the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act. Additionally Mr. Fernandez was not permitted scheduled or uninterrupted breaks.
