Joseph C. Brancato v. Verizon New York, Inc., Case No. 14-cv-03793

New Collective Action in the Southern District Of New York

Joseph C. Brancato v. Verizon New York, Inc., Case No. 14-cv-03793
On May 28, 2014, Lead Plaintiff, Joseph Brancato on behalf of himself and those similarly situated filed a class and collective action lawsuit in United States District Court – Southern District of New York vs. Verizon New York, Inc. (“Verizon”). Verizon gave Mr. Brancato various job titles throughout his thirty-five year employment with Verizon, but he is currently titled as a “Local Manager.” He alleges that Verizon misclassified him as a “manager” in order to list him as an exempt employee who does not earn overtime; when in reality he has no management authority and should be paid overtime wages for every hour he works over forty hours per week. Mr. Brancato works between six or seven days per week in shifts from twelve to fourteen hours and alleges Verizon fails to pay him the statutorily required overtime rate of pay or minimum wage rates of pay for hours he works over forty hours per week in violation of New York Labor Law, New York Compensation Codes Rules and Regulations and the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act. If any person worked for the company named as a Defendant in the lawsuit during the time period of May 28, 2008 – May 28, 2014 or has information that may be relevant to this case, contact Borrelli & Associates, P.L.L.C via phone: (516) 248 - 5550
