Airline service company Eulen America will reimburse employees more than half a million dollars for uniform laundering costs unlawfully deducted from workers’ salaries, New York Attorney General Letitia James has announced.

Under a settlement agreement, Eulen – which provides passenger services at New York’s JFK Airport as a subcontractor to American Airlines – will return $590,000 to approximately 1,500 workers who were forced to pay for laundry costs out of their minimum wage paychecks.
