Damon Smith v. Almar Party Rental Corp., and Martin Fox, Case No. 15-cv-00436

On January 28, 2015, Lead Plaintiff Damon Smith on behalf of himself and those similarly situated filed a class and collective action lawsuit in United States District Court – District of New Jersey vs. Almar Party Rental Corp., and Martin Fox. Mr. Smith worked for Defendants, a tent and party rental company as a general employee from July 30, 2014 through October 8, 2014. He alleges that he worked between forty-five and seventy hours per week throughout his employment. However, Defendants failed to pay Mr. Smith the proper minimum wage, at any rate of pay or the proper overtime compensation at the statutorily-required overtime rate of pay for any hour that he worked per week over forty hours per week as the New Jersey Wage and Hour Law, and the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act require. In addition, Defendants did not pay Mr. Smith for a one-hour break, even though Defendants did not permit Mr. Smith to take any sort of scheduled or uninterrupted, one-hour lunch break in violation of the common law of New Jersey.
