Labor: Fair Standards
Ramon E. Reyes, Jr
A Cuban-born Major League Baseball umpire is calling on the Second Circuit on Thursday to revive his claims that he wasn't promoted because of his race, ethnicity and national origin. Here, Law360 looks at that case and other major labor and employment cases on the docket in New York.
A New York City company that works on sewer and water lines has settled a proposed wage and hour class action for $1.5 million in federal court, putting to rest its workers' claims that they worked uncompensated off-the-clock hours and weren't given pay stubs.
Crew members can move forward as a class with claims that a water main and sewer line construction and repair company failed to pay wages and overtime compensation or provide wage notices, a New York federal court ruled Thursday, saying evidence showed common issues predominated.
