Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman Announces $20,000 Settlement with Air Serv Corporation
May 8 14
Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman announced a settlement of almost $20,000 with Air Serv Corporation, a commercial airline industry contractor operating at John F. Kennedy International Airport and LaGuardia Airport in New York City, for underpaying nearly 300 minimum wage wheelchair attendants. The bulk of the settlement funds, nearly $16,000, will be distributed to the attendants whose wages were not increased by the company when the state's minimum wage rose to $8 an hour, from $7.25 an hour, on December 31. Under the agreement, Air Serv must pay $4,000 in penalties to New York State. Instead of raising the attendants' wages, the company unilaterally reclassified the workers as tipped employees. At the same time, the company, which is headquartered in Georgia and operates at airports across the nation, failed to comply with New York State's requirements that allow for the lower tipped wage. The assistants, who are hired to help airline passengers needing wheelchair assistance, were underpaid from December 31 until the end of March. On December 30, the day before the minimum wage increased by 75 cents, the company advised the wheelchair attendants of an immediate change of policy whereby they would be considered tipped employees and, for that reason, would continue receiving $7.25 per hour and not the higher minimum wage. Although state law allows employers to pay tipped employees a lower rate defined by law, employers may only do so when employees' weekly average tips reach a certain set threshold amount that varies by industry; for wheelchair attendants, that amount is $1.20 per hour. If employees do not receive a weekly average of $1.20 per hour, the employer may not reduce wages by the tip allowance and must pay the full minimum wage. In addition to payment of restitution funds and penalties, Air Serv will designate a compliance officer responsible for ensuring the proper use of the tip credit. For 18 months, this compliance officer will furnish the Attorney General's Office with quarterly reports for any quarter during which a tip allowance is taken in order to ensure that tip credits are taken only when permitted by law.
