Philadelphia employment lawyers of Sidney L. Gold & Associates advocate for fair wages for restaurant workers. Employers in the restaurant industry expect their employees to work long hours to fulfill the needs of their customers. Servers, cooks, hostesses, dishwashers, and table bussers are under constant pressure to deliver prompt and accurate orders. Even though these employees work under some of the most stressful conditions, some of their employers try to deny them of their lawful earnings.
Employers that fail to pay employees for all hours worked, who do not pay overtime for hours in excess of 40 hours per week, and those who do not ensure that their employees earn at least minimum wage are in violation of wage and hour laws. Some employers may even attempt to misappropriate tips that are given for service received from the employees at the restaurant and are due to be paid to the employee. Sidney L. Gold & Associates are committed to helping restaurant workers receive their lawful compensation.
