Recent Rulings: Wage and Hour

A magazine company has agreed to settle a case claiming that its interns should have received minimum wage and overtime pay for their work for $5.85 million dollars. One intern claimed that she was paid $12 per day, regardless of the number of hours she worked. The other named plaintiff claimed that he was paid a few hundred dollars for an entire summer's worth of work. Unpaid internships are not legal if the company is essentially getting free work that it would ordinarily have to pay an employee to perform. Further, the intern must gain valuable educational or career experience from the internship. (Ballinger et al v. Advance Magazine Publishers Inc., Case No. 1:13-cv-04036, S.D.N.Y. 2013).

Client Testimonials

"I worked for a retailer and was a Plaintiff in a class action for unpaid overtime wages. Hayber Law Firm did an amazing job of getting our unpaid overtime back to us. Every one at the firm that I dealt with through that process was wonderful to work with. I appreciate all they did for us more than you will ever know."
