DOL Investigation of NYC Chinese Restaurant
Tannenbaum Helpern employment lawyers resolved a U.S. Department of Labor investigation of our client, an upscale Chinese restaurant. Prior to engaging Tannenbaum Helpern our client had submitted documentation to the DOL without any legal guidance. The restaurant client had potentially millions of dollars in liability with respect to wage claims – both corporate and personal. Tannenbaum Helpern reframed the focus on the records that had been produced, produced additional limited documentation, assisted the client with coming into compliance with applicable wage and hour laws, met with Department of Labor agents and negotiated a settlement and resolution to the investigation at a fraction of the potential exposure.
