BMK Attorneys Obtain $500,000 Judgement Against Limited Liability Company and Individual Manager for Violation of the MA Wage Act

BMK attorneys Robert Berluti and Michael Bednarz obtained a judgment in excess of $500,000 on behalf of their client against his former employer and its individual limited liability company manager for violation of the Massachusetts Wage Act. After a bench trial in Suffolk Superior Court, the Court ruled that the firm’s client was not a partner in the construction company business venture, was improperly classified as an independent contractor as opposed to an employee and failed to pay him his duly earned wages. The $500,000+ judgment included the client’s unpaid salary, fringe benefits, treble damages, attorneys’ fees and costs, and pre-judgment interest.
