On August 3, 2010, Outten & Golden and Make the Road New York filed a wage and hour lawsuit in the Federal District Court for the Eastern District of New York against Bimmy’s, one of New York City’s largest wholesalers of “premium” sandwiches, wraps, salads, and other pre-packaged food items, and its owner Elliot Fread. The plaintiffs alleged that Bimmy’s and Mr. Fread failed to pay the applicable minimum wage rate for all hours worked; failed to pay proper overtime compensation to employees who worked more than 40 hours in a work week; failed to reimburse workers for the cost of purchasing and laundering required uniforms; and failed to pay workers “spread of hours pay” for days on which they worked more than ten hours.  The parties reached a settlement of their claims in February 2012 for the full back wages and damages owed.
