The United States Department of Labor has filed a lawsuit against a Yonkers wholesale commercial cleaning and laundry business as well as its president, for wage and record-keeping violations.

According to the federal lawsuit, since at least 2009, Serklan Inc and Yong Hee Lee repeatedly violated the Fair Labor Standards Act by paying workers a flat cash salary for hours worked, including those over 40-hours-per- week causing the amount to drop below minimum wage and overtime requirements.

Federal law requires that employees be paid at least minimum wage for all hours worked up to 40 hours per week, and time plus one-half for hours worked over 40. MidHudsonNews.com reports that federal law also requires employers to keep accurate employee records, including hours worked and conditions of employment.

The lawsuit seeks back wages for the employees, as well as an equal amount in liquidated damages. The feds also want the company and its owner to be prohibited from violating any wage laws in the future.
