Earlier today, attorneys from Kalikhman & Rayz, LLC and Carlson Lynch, Ltd., filed a class action against Darden Restaurants, which bills itself as “the world’s largest full-service restaurant company” and operates all Red Lobster, Olive Garden, LongHorn Steakhouse, Bahama Breeze, Seasons 52, and The Capital Grille locations in Pennsylvania. As detailed in the complaint, Darden engaged in multiple “tip credit” violations, effectively paying employees less than the applicable minimum wage. Initiated in the Court of Common Pleas of Philadelphia County, the class action seeks compensation on behalf of all servers, who were employed at Red Lobster, Olive Garden, LongHorn Steakhouse, Bahama Breeze, Seasons 52, and The Capital Grille in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania within the past four years, on the basis of 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.
