The complaint alleges as follows: Mr. Venites began employment for Defendants on January 20, 2016 as a dishwasher. As a dishwasher, Plaintiff’s main duties consisted of washing dishes and cleaning the kitchen by sweeping and mopping the floor. Throughout his employment, Defendants required Plaintiff to work six days per week and Plaintiff did routinely work, fifty-two hours per week. Additionally, throughout his employment, on every workday that Plaintiff worked for Defendants from Tuesday through Friday, the length of his shifts exceeded ten hours thereby entitling him to spread of hours pay. However, on those days, Defendants failed to compensate Plaintiff with an additional hour’s pay at the New York State minimum wage rate.
