In September 2015, two safety flaggers filed a lawsuit in federal court against Carlo Lizza & Sons Paving, Ships Point Industries and A&B Contractors. The Plaintiffs allege that they were paid straight-time rates for all hours and did not receive overtime premiums even though they typically worked over 40 hours per week, sometimes over 50 hours. The Plaintiffs also allege that they were not paid prevailing wages even though they were performing flagging duties in connection with construction on public roadways. The Complaint also asserts that Defendants failed to provide accurate wage statements and wage notices, as required by New York law.
