Investigation of Companies in Violation of State Mandated Weekly Pay for Manual Workers

Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is currently investigating employers who violate state labor laws by failing to pay certain workers on a weekly basis. In certain states, listed below, state labor statutes require that employees pay manual workers manual laborers on a weekly and not bi-weekly basis. Manual labor includes tasks requiring the employee to use their body to perform a task, such as preparing food, cooking, delivering food to tables, stocking inventory, cleaning and other similar tasks.

States which have weekly pay statutes include:

  • California
  • Connecticut
  • Iowa*
  • Massachusetts*
  • Michigan
  • New Hampshire*
  • New York
  • Rhode Island
  • Vermont*

*State does not grant exceptions based on occupation

Restaurants and other franchises including Five Guys Enterprises in the state of New York have been subject to class action lawsuits alleging violations of this weekly pay mandate without express permission from the commissioner of the state’s Department of Labor. These suits seek to recover untimely wages as damages for the impacted employees. We suspect that many companies may similarly take advantage of their employees in this way.

Are you a worker who performs manual labor in a state with a weekly pay mandate and believe your rights have been violated?

If so, we would like to speak with you. Please complete the contact form on this page, send us an email at [email protected], or give us a call at (202) 470-3520 for more information.
