ORDER re 86 Letter regarding liquidated damages under the FLSA and NYLL - The Plaintiffs request for recovery of liquidated damages under both statutes is denied. The Court will permit the Plaintiff to recover liquidated damages under the NYLL as it provides him with a greater potential recovery than the FLSA, which has a shorter statute of limitations and does not provide for spread of hours wages. Therefore, the jury will be instructed to decide the questions of (i) whether the Plaintiff has met his burden of proving that the Defendants acted willfully; and (ii) whether the Defendants have met their burden of proving that they acted in reasonable good faith. If the jury answers the first question Yes -- i.e. they find that the Defendants acted willfully --, then the Plaintiff will be entitled to 25% of the overtime and spread of hours wages awarded from 2006 to 2009 as liquidated damages. If the jury answers the second question No, -- i.e. they find that the Defendants did not act in reasonable good faith --, then the Plaintiff will be entitled to an additional 100% of the overtime and spread of hours wages awarded from 2009 to 2012 as liquidated damages. SEE ATTACHED ORDER for further details. So Ordered by Judge Arthur D. Spatt on 4/29/2016. (Coleman, Laurie)
