AddThis Social Bookmark Button

A lawsuit has been filed in a federal Manhattan district court which alleges Dewey & LeBoeuf and Robert Half International, Inc., of violating labor laws by failing to pay overtime.

Charlemagne Dumay, a network operations specialist working through Robert Half as a temp, alleges that since 2009 while working as many as 48 to 56  hours a week, Dewey and Robert Half did not pay him  overtime wages. Dumay has worked for both firms since 2005 and states that from being hired to 2008 he had received the appropriate pay wages.

The lawsuit alleges that the firm of Dewey & LeBoeuf as well as the Robert Half staffing agency has violated multiply labor laws established by the Fair Labor Standards Act, New York Labor Law and New York State Department of Labor regulations.  The lawsuit has been filed as a putative class action, as there is a belief that the unfair pay practices go beyond Dumay’s experiences alone.

Dumay, who is still works for Robert Half at Dewey & LeBoeuf,  is seeking compensation for unpaid wages, damages and attorney’s fees.

Both firms have declined requests to comment.
