Laura Lorandini v. Developmental Disabilities Institute, Inc., Donte Blades, and Sue Davis, Case No. 15-cv-00436

On April 13, 2015, Lead Plaintiff Laura Lorandini on behalf of herself and those similarly situated filed a class and collective action lawsuit in United States District Court – Eastern District of New York vs. Developmental Disabilities Institute, Inc., Donte Blades, and Sue Davis. Ms. Lorandini worked for Defendants, a non-profit agency that serves individuals with autism as an employee from December 5, 2008 through January 2, 2015. She alleges that she worked around fifty-five hours per week throughout her employment. However, Defendants failed to pay Ms. Lorandini 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 she worked per week over forty hours per week, or as the New York Labor Law, New York Compensation Codes Rules and Regulations, and the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act require. Furthermore, Defendants failed to pay Ms. Lorandini at her regular rate of pay for each hour that she worked in accordance with her terms of employment. In addition, Defendants failed to furnish Mr. Colon with accurate wage statements on each payday as required by the New York Labor Law.

Making matters worse Defendants discriminated against Ms. Lorandini on the basis of her disability in violation of the New York State Human Rights Law.
