Herald doubles down on AvalonBay sub
Posted by on

A day after the Herald exposed the rampant violations by subcontractors on multiple AvalonBay sites in Massachusetts, they've picked up on the arrest and arraignment of one of those same subs in Connecticut.

John Kirk, CEO of National Carpentry, is the subject of today's bad news.

"In the civil lawsuit, the day laborers accused Kirk of violating payroll laws by using secret time cards and cash payments. The suit also alleges National Carpentry failed to pay overtime and minimum wage and eventually stopped paying workers altogether."

"After the suit was filed, Connecticut labor officials investigated. Kirk was arrested Feb. 12 and arraigned yesterday in Connecticut Superior Court. He faces up to $5,000 in fines or five years in jail."
