Federal Investigation Recovers $353k In Back Wages Liquidated Damages For 79 Sales Associates Denied Overtime By Two Metro By T

T Mobile & Metro Emergency Broadband Benefit Program

ELIZABETH, NJ The U.S. Department of Labor has recovered $353,945 in back wages and liquidated damages for 79 sales associates at 12 New Jersey T-Mobile locations whose owners willfully denied the employees overtime wages for hours over 40 in workweek.

Investigators with the departments Wage and Hour Division found that Morad Marashli and Kabaeil Barakat who operate Metro by T-Mobile locations in Bayonne, Colonia, Elizabeth, Somerset, and Union City failed to pay the associates overtime at time-and-one-half their required rates of pay when required by law, and paid them in cash, off the books at a straight time rate. Their actions violated the Fair Labor Standards Act.

In addition to the recovery of back wages and damages, the division assessed a civil money penalty of $38,670 due to the employers willful violation of the law. Sales associates worked at locations owned and operated by Marashli and Barakat, under multiple entities.

Kabaeil Barakat operates the following Metro by T-Mobile locations:

Entity Name

Morad Marashli operates the following Metro by T-Mobile locations:

Entity Name

752 Hamilton St.


Morad Marashli and Kabaeil Barakat denied their sales associates the full extent of their hard-earned wages, making it harder for them to make ends meet, said Wage and Hour Division District Director Paula Ruffin in Mountainside, New Jersey. Wage theft harms workers and their families and hurts responsible employers who abide by the law.
