The Alameda County Superior Court has granted final approval to a $1.25 million dollar wage and hour class action settlement against a California company which owns and operates more than thirty franchise locations of a popular sit-down restaurant chain. [The actual name of the employer and chain cannot be disclosed here under the terms of settlement.]
The plaintiffs and class members were represented by Kevin R. Allen and Brad Yamauchi of Minami Tamaki LLP.
The settlement class consists of over 5,000 hourly restaurant employees in California who plaintiffs allege were not provided with off-duty meal and rest breaks, reporting time pay, and split-shift differential pay as required by law.
