Suspect in Gilgo Beach killings sued over labor violations in New York

Rex Heuermann, the man accused of being the Gilgo Beach killer, is being sued by New York state’s Labor Department for allegedly failing to pay outstanding damages for violating labor laws, court documents show.

Heuermann and his architecture firm, RH Consultants & Associates, owe $68,560.84, according to the lawsuit, filed in New York County Supreme Court by Labor Commissioner Roberta Reardon. Supreme Court is the name of New York’s top trial court.

The lawsuit says Heuermann and his firm underpaid an executive assistant in 2017 and 2018. The employee is owed a little over $20,000 in unpaid wages, according to an exhibit filed in the suit.
