Warner Music Group Corp. and Atlantic Recording Corp.
Several former unpaid interns have alleged that Warner Music Group Corp. and Atlantic Recording Corp. (“Warner/Atlantic”) unlawfully failed to pay them wages, while requiring them to work long hours without a true educational experience that benefited them. Two cases were originally filed. One was filed in New York State Supreme Court, New York County alleging that interns dating back to 2007 were not paid properly, and one is pending in federal court in the U.S. District Court in the Southern District of New York titled Grant v. Warner Music Group Corp. and Atlantic Recording Corp., No. 13-CV-4449(PGG), alleging that interns over the last three (3) years were not paid the federal minimum wage or overtime compensation.
The cases are being litigated separately at the present, but include similar factual issues against the same (or similar) corporate entities. If you have information on either of the cases, you may want to speak to an attorney at Leeds Brown Law, P.C. or Virginia & Ambinder, LLP, to determine what rights you have and how, if any, you can be involved in the action.
