AMON,United States District Judge:
Plaintiff Jorge Saucedo brings this action against defendants On the Spot Audio Corp., d/b/a
On the Spot Moto, and Oscar Torres, seeking unpaid overtime and minimum wages pursuant to the
Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938,28 U.S.C. § 201 etseq.("FLSA"),and the New York Labor Law,
N.Y. Lab. Law § 650 et seq. ("NYLL"), as well as unpaid spread of hours wages and damages
stemming from defendants' unlawful retention of gratuities and failure to comply with the wage
notice requirements ofthe NYLL. None ofthe defendants have appeared in these proceedings, and
the Clerk of Court noted the default of the defendants on May 18, 2016. (D.E. #11). Plaintiff
moved for a default judgment against the defendants on June 2, 2016,(D.E. # 13), and on June 16,
2016, the Court referred the motion to Magistrate Judge Cheryl L. Pollak for a Report and
Recommendation("R&R"). (D.E. dated June 16,2016.) Magistrate Judge Pollak issued a thorough
and well-reasoned R&R recommending granting the plaintiffs motion for a defaultjudgment. (D.E.
No party has objected to the R&R,and the time for doing so has passed. When deciding
whether to adopt a report and recommendation, a district court "may accept, reject, or modify, in
whole or in part, the findings or recommendations made by the magistrate judge." 28 U.S.C.
§ 636(b)(1). To accept those portions of the R&R to which no timely objection has been made,"a
district court need only satisfy itself that there is no clear error on the face of the record." Jarvis v.
N. Am. Globex Fund. L.P.. 823 F. Supp. 2d 161, 163 (E.D.N.Y. 2011)(internal quotation marks
and citation omitted).
The Court has reviewed the record and,finding no clear error, adopts the R&R as the opinion
of the Court. Accordingly, the Court grants the plaintiffs motion for defaultjudgment. The Clerk
of Court is directed to enter judgment against the defendants,jointly and severally, and in favor of
the plaintiff: $141,045.73 in damages and interest, and $11,266 in attorney's fees and costs. The
Clerk of Court is directed to close the case.
