ABK Law IN THE NEWS: Lawrence Spasojevich, Esq. quoted in EATER: “Cecil Steakhouse in Harlem Faces Class Action Lawsuit Over Allegations of Wage Theft

A former employee alleges the well-regarded restaurant engaged in illegal practices that shortchanged staffers’ pay.

“Former employees of the Cecil Steakhouse allege the popular Harlem restaurant engaged in wage theft and other illegal practices that shortchanged staffers’ pay. The allegations, which surfaced as part of a class-action lawsuit filed with the New York Supreme Court on August 11, date back to March 2021 and involve approximately 50 current and former employees of the restaurant.

The class-action suit seeks “an amount to be determined at trial, plus interest, attorneys’ fees, and cost.” As many as 50 employees may have been affected by the alleged incidents, according to Lawrence Spasojevich, an attorney with Aidala Bertuna & Kamins PC who is representing Hardwell. He estimates that certain workers may be entitled to as much as $10,000 each, not including delayed payments and other damages.”
