OPINION & ORDER: For the foregoing reasons, plaintiffs' motion for a default judgment against defendant is granted in part and denied in part. Specifically, the court holds, as to Part I of the complaint, that: (1) defendants violated plaintiff Jimenez Corcione's rights under the NYLL and FLSA, and defendants owe him for unpaid minimum wages, overtime wages, and spread-of-hours pay for a total of $1,145.75; (2) Jimenez Cordone is owed an additional $1,145.75 in liqu idated damages, plus $1,314.41 in pre-judgment interest as well as post-judgment interest; (3) Jimenez Cordone is owed attorney's fees and costs in an amount to be determined after counsel provides additional information to the court; (4) plaintiffs Martinez and Morales shall, by August 22, 2016, provide by affidavit the information requested by the court in this opinion so that the court can calculate whether and to what extent they are owed under the FLSA or NYLL for unpaid w ages, unpaid overtime, unpaid spread-of-hours pay, as well as liquidated damages, pre- and post-judgment interest, and/or attorney's fees; and (5) all plaintiffs are owed damages for defendants' failure to provide regular wage statements and annual wage notices as required by the WTPA. The court dismisses without prejudice for lack of subject-matter jurisdiction each of Morales's sexual harassment-related claims in Part II of the complaint. (As further set forth in this Opinion) (Signed by Judge Thomas P. Griesa on 8/1/2016) (kl)
