Restaurant Turns Around Class Wage and Hour Class Action Lawsuit Threat

A small restaurant with three locations was sued by four former employees seeking to represent a class of servers alleging meal and rest break violations, unpaid overtime, off-the-clock work, and tip pool violations.  CDF ultimately convinced plaintiffs that they would be unable to have a class certified and settled with the named plaintiffs for a nominal amount.  Through the litigation, the client was able to ensure it was in full compliance with all wage and hour laws to reduce the risk of future class actions.
