Veteran Rocker Joan Jett is Facing a Lawsuit for Failure to Pay Overtime

November 11, 2015

Leeds Brown Law, P.C. is representing Bradley Weinbrand, Joan Jett’s former personal assistant in an action for unpaid overtime. The lawsuit was filed in New York Supreme Court, Nassau County, earlier this year.

Partner, Jeffrey Brown, commented, “All too often personal assistants go above and beyond to satisfy their celebrity bosses without proper compensation for their hard work and labor.”

Failure to pay an employee overtime wages is a violation of Federal law. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FSLA) protects employees who are not paid the minimum wage and/or not properly compensated for overtime. The FSLA requires employers to pay non-exempt workers (employees who are eligible for overtime pay under the law) at one and a half times their hourly pay rate for hours worked in excess of 40 hours in a given work week.
