U.S. Chamber files coalition amicus brief urging review of whether there exists a private right of action (and liquidated damages) for violations of New York labor law providing for weekly payment of manual workers
April 28, 2022
The brief highlights the tidal wave of class action litigation spurred by a recent state court decision recognizing such a right and emphasizes the threat to employers, especially small business, given the potentially massive liability. Stephanie Schuster and Michael E. Kenneally of Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP and the U.S. Chamber’s Litigation Center served as co-counsel for the U.S. Chamber.
