Hot news flash! The wage theft committee reports on the successful–or at least partially successful–outcome of one of the wage theft complaints. A worker and committee member met with the owner of a business in Ridgefield Park who owed the worker quite a lot of money. He came to the meeting prepared to pay part of the money owed, and return all the worker’s tools, some of them quite expensive. Although we always hope to have the debts settled in full, in many cases like this the worker is willing to settle for less, especially when there are disputes about dates worked and amount owed.
