A History of Successfully Protecting Restaurant Employee Rights

Thomas & Solomon LLP has a history of representing workers in the restaurant industry. We have filed cases against well-known restaurants, and secured favorable decisions litigating against some of the largest law firms in the industry.We know from our clients that workers in the service industry, particularly restaurant employees, regularly experience employment violations. We help servers, bartenders, busboys, and hosts recover money they are owed and fight for all restaurant employee rights.

Violations in the Restaurant Industry

Our law firm has seen a variety of ways that employees in the restaurant industry may be owed money, including:

  • Being paid subminimum wages for duties unrelated to a tipped position, including washing dishes, rolling silverware, preparing entrees and appetizers, and cleaning the restaurant;
  • Failing to pay minimum wage for all hours worked;
  • Failing to pay spread of hours wages of an additional hour of pay for each day that employees worked a spread of hours in excess of 10 hours;
  • Failing to provide wage notice documents;
  • Improper tip pooling;
  • Failing to pay for missed or interrupted breaks; and
  • Failing to pay overtime of the minimum wage rate, not subminimum wage, for all hours worked in excess of 40 hours in a workweek.

These are just a few of the examples of restaurant employee rights violations we have heard from workers in the industry.
