AMC Workers Say They Weren't Paid on Time

A group of employees is taking American Multi-Cinema (AMC) to court because they say the company didn’t pay them when it should have. The lawsuit started in New York, and it’s all about crew members who didn’t get their money soon enough. By law, in New York, people who do certain types of work should be paid every day, but AMC was paying them every two weeks. This might not seem like a big deal, but getting paid on time is super important—it lets people pay bills and buy things they need without stress.

Who’s Affected and What’s the Big Problem?

The employees in this lawsuit, Zakaria Khafagy and Christopher Horsford, and others like them, say AMC didn’t follow the rules. They worked different jobs—from selling popcorn to managing the kitchen—but they all did ‘hands-on’ work. That type of work falls under special rules in New York. These rules are in place to make sure that people who put in hard work get their paychecks quickly. The law's there for a reason, and when it’s ignored, it can mess up a person’s budget and cause real problems.

What’s the Big Idea Behind this Law?

The law that the employees are talking about is meant to keep workers from being taken advantage of. When people work hard, they should be able to rely on getting paid on time. It’s about respect, and making sure that workers can cover their costs without having to wait and worry. If companies don’t follow this law, they’re basically saying their workers' time and needs aren’t important.

AMC's Side of the Story

AMC, on the other hand, might have a different explanation. Sometimes companies think they have good reasons for doing things a certain way. But even if that’s true, they still have to follow the law. The lawsuit is a way for crew members to speak up about what they believe AMC did wrong.

AMC is Disregarding Its Employees' Rights

This isn’t just about a few late paychecks. It’s about the principle of the thing. If a law says you’ve got to pay people every day and you don’t, you’re breaking a promise. This lawsuit could help make sure companies take these promises seriously and treat their employees fairly.
