NY Golf Club Employees Get $1M Wage Theft Settlement

NY Golf Club Employees Get $1M Wage Theft Settlement


A golf club owned by the City of Rye, New York, will pay one million dollars to settle claims for unpaid overtime wages owed to its workers under the Fair Labor Standards Act and the New York Labor Law. Judge Nelson Stephen Roman, a federal judge in New York, gave preliminary approval to a deal that would settle claims against Rye Golf Club and the City of Rye from current and former staff at a restaurant and event space at the club.  A fairness hearing in the case is scheduled for June 2017. The lawsuit alleged that current and former servers, bussers/runners, bartenders, dishwashers, kitchen staff and all other hourly employees at the Country Club who worked between December 2007 and July 2016 were not paid overtime wages, unpaid spread-of-hours wages and unreimbursed business expenses. Attorneys for the workers claimed the country club failed to pay overtime premiums for the hours they worked over 40 hours in a workweek.  Lawyers for the workers also claimed their rights were violated when the Country Club failed to pay “spread-of-hours” premiums for days where the employees worked more than 10 hours a day, failed to provide the employees with all their earned tips and gratuity, and failed to compensate them for uniform maintenance expenses.
