McLaughlin and Stern files class action lawsuit against Bloomberg, LP for unpaid wages
Bloomberg LP failed to pay its employees overtime despite settling a $3 million lawsuit two years ago that challenged the company’s pay practices, a former human resources employee said in a proposed class and collective action in New York federal court.
In a complaint Thursday, Heidi Diaz said that although Bloomberg settled similar overtime claims in a separate action, she was often required to work through her meal breaks, as well as before and after her scheduled shifts. Diaz said she was not paid for that overtime, in violation of both the Fair Labor Standards Act and the New York Labor Law……
Brett R. Gallaway of McLaughlin & Stern LLP, one of the attorneys representing Diaz, said the legal team is looking forward to pursuing the claims even in light of the $3 million settlement. “We believe Bloomberg continues to skirt its obligations regarding employee compensation and will aggressively pursue all avenues of recovery on behalf of the proposed class,” Gallaway said.
Diaz is represented by Lee S. Shalov, Brett R. Gallaway and Jason S. Giaimo of McLaughlin & Stern LLP. READ MORE
