National Cell Phone Provider: Employees denied meal and rest breaks and forced to pay check cashing fees.

Case Summary:

Employees denied meal and rest breaks and forced to pay check cashing fees.  For many employees working for a national cell phone provider, a battle for their basic workplace rights has culminated in a significant legal victory, thanks to the dedicated efforts of Kingsley Szamet & Ly Employment Lawyers. In this case, the company was not only denying its workers their legally mandated meal and rest breaks but also subjecting them to an unfair burden by forcing them to pay check cashing fees.

Case Background:

Client Group: National Cell Phone Provider
Legal Issue: Meal and Rest Breaks, Check Cashing Fees
Settlement Amount: $2,800,000.00

The employees' struggle was rooted in two critical legal issues. First, they were consistently denied their state-mandated meal and rest breaks, leaving them physically and emotionally drained due to the relentless work demands. Second, the company imposed an unjust financial burden on its workers by forcing them to pay check cashing fees, which significantly reduced their hard-earned wages.

Settlement Outcome:

Kingsley Szamet & Ly, known for their unwavering commitment to employee rights, embarked on a mission to rectify this injustice. After meticulous investigation and persistent legal action, they successfully secured a remarkable $2,800,000.00 settlement on behalf of the affected employees.

This substantial settlement serves not only as compensation for the employees who endured the hardship of denied breaks and unjust financial practices but also as a clear message to employers across the nation. Employers are obligated to adhere to labor laws, ensuring that their employees receive their legally mandated breaks and are not subjected to unfair financial practices.
