JUSTICE FOR THE WORKERS OF ROYAL COMMERCIAL CLEANING
In January, Attorney General Eric Schneiderman reported that his office had succeeded in convicting and sentencing Jose Hector Hernandez Gramajo, the owner of Royal Commercial Cleaning, for a violation of Labor Law 198-a. In short, Hernandez Gramajo and Royal Commercial cleaning were guilty of wage theft.
The case was referred to the Attorney General by the highly-respected advocacy group, Make the Road New York.
Not only did this company underpay its workers, but Hernandez Gramajo bullied two employees into returning money to him that had been awarded to them by the United States Department of Labor!
Here at The Klein Law Group we deplore employers who profit from the hard work and dedication of their employees, only to cheat and bully them out of their hard-earned wages. As advocates ourselves of men and women who have not been paid the legal minimum wage, or overtime, or who have been bullied and cheated by unscrupulous employers, we applaud Eric Schneiderman, the Attorney General's Office, and Make the Road New York for successfully standing up for the employees of Royal Commercial Cleaning.
