Waiters and Kitchen Staff Recover Owed Overtime Pay
Our attorneys successfully represented dozens of waiters and kitchen staff who worked at upscale chain of South American cuisine restaurants in Houston. The employer was cheating its employees out of overtime by having them work at multiple locations in the same week and issuing multiple pay checks. The law required the defendant to add all hours worked for the same company to determine if more than 40 hours were worked in the same week.
Each plaintiff recovered his or her overtime pay, liquidated damages (penalties), and attorneys' fees from the defendant.
