Recently, together with our colleagues from Connolly Wells & Gray, LLP, attorneys from Kalikhman & Rayz, LLC initiated a class action against Kooma Restaurants – a group of Pennsylvania-based Asian food establishments. As detailed in the complaint, Kooma employees were not paid the applicable minimum wages or the proper overtime wages. Moreover, a portion of Kooma employees’ gratuities were inappropriately retained in violation of federal and state law. Initiated in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, the class action seeks compensation on the basis of the Fair Labor Standards Act, 29 U.S.C. § 201 et seq., the Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act, 43 P.S. § 333.101, et seq., the Pennsylvania Wage Payment and Collection Law, 43 Pa.C.S. § 260.1 et seq., and common law causes of action.
Our firm is actively involved in investigation and prosecution of various aspects of “wage and hour” violations, especially in the restaurant and entertainment industries, such as “working off the clock,” failure to pay minimum wage, and failure to conform to the U.S. Department of Labor “tip credit” requirements. If you or anyone you know may have been victimized by nefarious employment practices, please do not hesitate to contact Kalikhman & Rayz, LLC.
