State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced Thursday the distribution of $2.25 million in two separate labor cases.

In one case 306 current and former employees of Flat Rate Movers, a  multi-state moving and storage company with headquarters in New York City are being paid $1.13 million in restitution.

In the 2nd case, about 100 employees of Mystique Clothing stores in New York City are now receiving restitution as part of a $950,000 settlement.
