Statement of District Attorney Madeline Singas on Labor Law Enforcement

The incredible skill and perseverance of Nassau’s workers has never shone brighter than during the COVID-19 pandemic. The men and women of Long Island’s labor community have done their jobs with dedication even in the most trying conditions. They have provided vital services, kept our infrastructure up to date, and helped moved our economy forward during a once-in-a-lifetime health crisis. 

Yet still, with workers going above and beyond the call of duty, some unscrupulous employers attempt to cheat and shortchange those who have given so much. The Nassau County District Attorney’s Office will not stand for that, and our dedicated Labor Unit is committed to strictly enforcing the labor laws that protect our workers. Since its establishment in 2006, our prosecutors have secured millions of dollars in restitution for workers and debarred dozens of employers. To date, our Labor Unit has recovered $4.5 million in restitution, secured 37 debarments and has a conviction rate of 100%.

We are grateful to the union leaders and workers who have brought these important cases to our attention, and we investigate every allegation. When we find a crime, we will aggressively prosecute, seek restitution whenever possible, and work to debar those who break the law.

If you or someone you know has been victimized by an unscrupulous employer, please call my Labor Unit at 516-571-2553 or contact us at www.nassauda.org.
