The Gabroy | Messer law firm represents a former employee of a Downtown Las Vegas restaurant in a tip pooling suit. The suit, which was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada, alleges that the restaurant’s owners, which is operated by a subsidiary of the Gibraltar Hospitality Services LLC, violated the Fair Labor Standards Act by forcing tipped employees to pool their tips with non-tipped employees.
In the complaint, the employee argues that the restaurant’s policy of requiring tipped employees to pool their tips with non-tipped employees resulted in her receiving lower wages than what he was legally entitled to. Furthermore, the employee alleges that the restaurant’s owners failed to provide proper notice of the tip pooling policy and failed to keep accurate records of the hours worked by tipped and non-tipped employees.
The lawsuit seeks damages for the employee’s unpaid wages, as well as an injunction prohibiting the restaurant from continuing the tip pooling policy. The lawsuit also seeks to recover liquidated damages for the employee’s unpaid wages, as well as attorney’s fees and costs.
