Cannoli Factory Feels the Heat over Alleged Wage Theft

  • Massachusetts AG Maura Healey reached a settlement with bakery Golden Cannoli Shells Co., Inc. and related individuals (collectively, “Golden Cannoli”) to resolve allegations of wage theft in violation of Massachusetts’s wage and hour laws.
  • According to the AG’s office, Golden Cannoli failed to pay workers for all hours worked, did not provide notice of a compliant earned sick time policy, unlawfully fired workers in retaliation for asserting their rights, and failed to produce accurate timekeeping and payroll records.
  • Under the terms of the settlement, Golden Cannoli will pay $80,000 in restitution for impacted workers and $25,000 in penalties, and must abide by all applicable wage and hour laws and to submit copies of its timekeeping, payroll, and earned sick time records to the AG’s office for one year, among other things.
