California workers who were denied meal and rest breaks have sued Levy Restaurant Group for unpaid wages and overtime compensation. Levy Restaurant Group manages food service operations in stadiums and arenas throughout the United States. A recent complaint against the company alleges that they forced employees to work through required meal and rest breaks.
Restaurant employees and other foodservice industry workers can fall prey to wage theft if they don’t know their rights. If you work in the foodservice industry and have similar complaints, you may have a claim against your employer for unpaid wages.
What Does the Complaint Allege?
The complaint alleges that Levy Restaurants employees were denied meal and rest breaks. Additionally, the plaintiff asserts that the timekeeping software used by the company rounded off entry and exit times, which caused the timekeeping system to inaccurately record the amount of time that employees spent on the job as well as erroneous wage statements. The complaint further claims that workers were required to wait in long security lines before the start of their shifts and wait in line to collect tips at the end of the workday. These activities took place off-the-clock and were not accounted for in workers’ pay. Further allegations state that the company did not pay workers all of their earned tips. These practices violate the California Labor Code and other wage and hour laws.
Similar cases have been settled for millions of dollars, although past success does not guarantee future results and individual recoveries will vary depending upon the number of hours worked and other factors.
