Previti Pizza Corp., Papazzio & Previti Corp., and Jack-Marv Inc. are on the receiving end of a proposed collective action filed by a former pizza maker who claims the defendants' New Hyde Park and New York City eateries failed to pay appropriate wages for any of his hours worked. The companies, who, along with two individuals, operate three Italian restaurants, are alleged to have repeatedly failed to timely pay the plaintiff proper wages while neglecting to maintain accurate records of the hours the man worked.
The plaintiff reportedly worked for the defendants from 2008 through March 2018. The complaint says he typically worked between 52.5 and 64 hours per week and was paid in a combination of personal checks and cash.
“Although [the plaintiff] was required to keep track of his time, [the defendants] required him to record fewer hours than he actually worked,” the suit alleges. “As a result, [the plaintiff] was not compensated for all of the hours that he worked.”
