On May 13, 2014, the SBA filed a third FLSA lawsuit; Small vs. the City of New York on behalf of 4,286 Sergeants. As you know, over the past two years the SBA has been victorious in two cases against the City for their failure to properly compensate sergeants under the provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act. Over 8,000 sergeants were plaintiffs in these two cases and over $36,000,000.00 was recovered on their behalf. As you are well aware, the City is still not complying with the provisions of the FLSA.
There are still some sergeants who have not filed to become a participant in this newest lawsuit. Even if you received a settlement in the Mullins or McInnis cases you are eligible to be part of this case.
