New Collective Action in the Southern District Of New York

Valentin Figuero Acevedo v. Grand Concourse Pharmacy, Inc. et al., Case No. 14-cv-04141

On June 9, 2014, Lead Plaintiff Valentin Figuero Acevedo on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated filed a class and collective action lawsuit in United States District Court – Southern District of New York vs. Grand Concourse Pharmacy Inc., Mohammad Shabbir and Abdul Rauf. Plaintiff worked for Defendants performing general duties at the pharmacy such as providing security, stocking shelves, delivering medicine to customers and cleaning the store. He alleges he worked from 8:45 a.m. to 9:15 p.m. between six to seven days per week, working a total of seventy-two to eighty-four hours per week. However, Defendants paid him in cash, did not provide him with an accurate wage statement and did not pay him for any hour he worked over forty hours per week. Additionally, Mr. Acevedo alleges that Defendants unlawfully retaliated against him because when Mr. Acevedo filed a complaint with the New York State Department of Labor against Defendants about their pay practices, Defendants filed a baseless civil suit against him. In sum, Mr. Acevedo alleges that Defendants’ pay practices and retaliation violates the New York Labor Law, New York Compensation Codes Rules and Regulations and the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act. If any person worked for the store or individuals named as a Defendant in the lawsuit during the time period of June 9, 2008 – June 9, 2014 or has information that may be relevant to this case, contact Borrelli & Associates, P.L.L.C. as soon as possible through our website, or any of our phone numbers: (516) 248 - 5550, (516) ABOGADO, and (212) 679 - 5000.
