The company takes its obligations to comply with the law very seriously, including the relevant wage and hour regulations, the payment of overtime to eligible employees and having a safe working environment for all of our employees, a company representative told WWD. We will vehemently defend any allegations to the contrary.
The suit, filed by a group of around 30 Wang employees, alleges that the designer violated New York labour laws governing minimum wage and overtime. Lead plaintiff Wenyu Lu contended that workers were expected to labour for 16-hour days in an unventilated, windowless 200-square-foot room, without collecting overtime payment.
Wang has yet to receive any papers from the court.
