The state attorney general is alleging a car wash in East Flatbush stole hundreds of thousands of dollars in wages from workers.
Eric Schneiderman has filed a lawsuit seeking $1.6 million from Tropical Breeze Car Wash in East Flatbush.
He says the company exploited vulnerable workers over a six-year period, allegedly doing things like confiscating time cards so workers couldn't punch in on time or record overtime.
Schneiderman says the company also ripped off the state by underreporting the number of workers employed to avoid paying unemployment insurance and workers compensation.
The AG is seeking damages, restitution and penalties of $1.6 million on behalf of 150 workers.
