Domino's Cited For Underpaying Workers At Three Westchester Stores

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is suing the nation's largest pizza chain, Domino’s, alleging it underpaid workers at 10 stores in New York, including three in Westchester.

The suit was filed Monday in the Manhattan New York Supreme Court.

It alleges that following a multi-year investigation it was revealed Domino's and the franchisees shortchanged workers in various ways, partly due to an erroneous computer operating system that incorrectly calculates staff wages.

The franchisees named in the lawsuit are:

  • Anthony Maestri, who owns and operates three New York Domino’s stores, and until November 2013 owned and operated six. The six stores are or were located in New York City and Westchester County.
  • Schueb Ahmed, who owns and operates two New York Domino’s stores located in Nassau County and New York City.
  • Matthew Denman, who owns and operates two New York Domino’s stores in Montgomery County.

Schneiderman's office has already settled cases with 12 Domino’s franchisees, who collectively own 61 stores and who have agreed to pay approximately $1.5 million to date.

“At some point, a company has to take responsibility for its actions and for its workers’ well-being," Schneiderman said in a statement. "We’ve found rampant wage violations at Domino’s franchise stores. And, as our suit alleges, we’ve discovered that Domino’s headquarters was intensely involved in store operations, and even caused many of these violations.

“Under these circumstances, New York law – as well as basic human decency – holds Domino’s responsible for the alleged mistreatment of the workers who make and deliver the company’s pizza. Domino’s can, and must, fix this problem.”
