Unfair Labor Practice in Happy Valley?

July 12th, 2021
sexual harassment


Two former restaurant workers filed suit against a former State College restaurant and its owner for unfair labor practices, including failure to pay minimum wage and not paying overtime, last week at the Middle District Court of Pennsylvania.

The former State College restaurant and its owner are targeted in a suit filed for violating the Fair Labor Standard Act, the Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act of 1968 and the Pennsylvania Wage Payment and Collection Law. Both of the former workers stopped working at the restaurant in May 2020.

The suit filed by the former workers, which states that they are also representing their fellow employees, accuses the restaurant of not providing accurate records of employee hours and owing workers lost wages, according to the filed complaint.

One worker alleged working 84 hours in one week without overtime pay and being allotted 10 minutes to eat meals, according to the suit. Another worker said that he was promised $4,500 per month but made $1,800 a month.
The former employees are seeking repayment of unpaid minimum wages, lost wages after “wrongful termination,” and liquidated and/or punitive damages, among other requests, according to the lawsuit. The plaintiffs are also requesting a trial by jury.
