Earlier today, together with our colleagues from Connolly Wells & Gray, LLP, attorneys from Kalikhman & Rayz, LLC filed a class action against Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery – a Celtic themed sports bar and restaurant chain in the United States and Canada that employs scantily-clad female servers, who wear “mini-kilts” and plaid bras, that has been described as “Hooters with a Scottish twist.” As detailed in the complaint, the Tilted Kilt‘s outfit in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, failed to properly compensate the staff for the time spent donning and doffing their uniforms or for the “prep time” spent out of uniform. The staff also were not paid for mandatory “pre-shift” meetings and various promotional activities, such as attending all-day golf outings, Philadelphia Phillies games, and Xfinity Live! Philadelphia pre/post game festivities, or walking around the King of Prussia Mall distributing menus or other promotional items. 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.
