Communications

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:

I am seeking the content of all labor complaints made to the Massachusetts Office of the Attorney General from January 1, 2013 to the present regarding the following employers located in Massachusetts:

A. Boston Segway Tours
B. Gentle Movers
C. Handy Cleaning Company
D. Domino's Pizza
E. Empire Construction Group
F. Pyramid Builder's Associates/Association
G. CSA Construction Services

I am seeking the full files of all complaints, including any follow-up from the Attorney General's Office.

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.

Sincerely,

Brian Sparks

Hi Emalie,

I have a question regarding the number of investigators in the AG's office looking into wage theft reports. I've been told there are 20 statewide, is that number correct?

Thank you,
Brian

From: Gainey, Emalie (AGO)

Hi Brian, for your background: FLD currently has 19 investigators that handle wage theft cases.
Thanks,
Emalie
