The company that does business as Beacon Wine & Spirits and a representative of the estate of one of the New York City liquor store’s deceased owners are facing a proposed collective action stemming from supposedly unpaid wages.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff worked as a stocker and delivery employee for defendant Funsan K. Corp. from July 2014 through April 2018. The man claims that he typically worked six days per week, from noon until 10:00 pm, and was often required to stay 20 to 30 minutes past his scheduled departure time in order to complete deliveries. Before March 2016, the plaintiff was rarely afforded a break longer than 20 minutes, the case says. The plaintiff says he received from the defendants a flat weekly salary without receiving adequate minimum, time-and-a-half overtime or spread-of-hours wages.
The plaintiff further claims that while he was allowed to keep cash tips from deliveries, he was not remitted all tips added to credit card charges.
