Wage Theft - Hong Kong & Nix's Mate Restaurants

Brian Sparks filed this request with the Attorney General's Office of Massachusetts.


From: Brian Sparks

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, M.G.L. c.66, ยง10, I hereby request the following records:

The contents of all labor complaints made to the Office of the Massachusetts Attorney General regarding the restaurants "Hong Kong at Faneuil Hall" and "Hong Kong at Harvard Square". These restaurants may also be listed as "W & P Hong Kong".

I also seek the contents of all complaints regarding "Bostonian Hospitality Group", which may also be known as "Nix's Restaurant" or "Nix's Mate"

I ask that this request be expedited, if possible.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as we believe this request is in the public interest, as suggested but not stipulated by the recommendations of the Massachusetts Supervisor of Public Records. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

I expect the request to be filled in an accessible format, including for screen readers, which provide text-to-speech for persons unable to read print. Files that are not accessible to screen readers include, for example, .pdf image files as well as physical documents.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.
