Seven Individuals Sued Metro by T-Mobile for Labor Laws Violations

Seven individuals filed an employment law complaint against a collection of New York City stores that sell cell phones, accessories, and monthly cell phone plans last week. Their complaint alleges that the defendant stores and an owner-manager violated the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the New York Labor Law (NYLL) by failing to pay them the overtime wages they were purportedly due.

The complaint explains that the six stores contract with MetroPCS New York, LLC, a subsidiary of T-Mobile, that manages and enters into agreements with entities that operate “Metro” branded stores in New York City, including the defendants. The parent company, T-Mobile provides wireless voice, messaging, and data services nationwide. MetroPCS allegedly “focuses on consumers interested in lower-priced service without the requirement of a long-term contract like Verizon or AT&T.” The plaintiffs aver that the six defendant stores constitute a single enterprise within the meaning of the FLSA and NYLL, and bring suit in a single filing.
