MEMORANDUM AND OPINION: The Court finds that defendants Mr. Z Towing and Frank Andreopolos have violated certain provisions of the FLSA and the NYLL, and awards plaintiffs damages in the amount of $119,655.11, representing unpaid wages, liquidated damages, wage notice violations, and prejudgment interest. The Court holds defendants Andreopolos and Mr. Z jointly and severally liable to plaintiffs Bedasie and Diaz for unpaid minimum wages, unpaid overtime wages, unpaid spread-of-hours wages, liquidated damages and prejudgment interest under the FLSA and NYLL. Defendants Andreopolos and Mr. Z are also jointly and severally liable to plaintiff Rosario for unpaid overtime wages, liquidated damages, and prejudgment interest under the FLSA and NYLL. In addition, the Court holds that plaintiffs failed to establish by a preponderance of the evidence that Mustakas was an "employer" within the meaning of either the FLSA or NYLL, and therefore she is not liable for any violations under the FLSA or NYLL. If plaintiffs wish to seek attorneys' fees and costs incurred in litigation, plaintiffs are Ordered to file a motion for fees and costs by May 1, 2017. The Clerk of Court is hereby Ordered to enter judgment in favor of plaintiffs in the amount of $119,655.11. So Ordered by Magistrate Judge Cheryl L. Pollak on 3/24/2017. (Rao, Sony)
