According to a complaint obtained by Eater, four former and current workers at various locations of Manhattan bar/bbq chain Brother Jimmy's filed a class action lawsuit against the owners and operators last week accusing them of labor and wage violations. The suit alleges that these four workers (and workers throughout the restaurants in general) were required to work more than 40 hours a week but were not compensated for such. Instead they were paid a flat rate every week, regardless of real hours worked, the complaint claims.
They are seeking to get paid for at least the 10 hours they worked overtime each week, for a span of years. The suit doesn't name a specific price tag, but if they succeed, the payout could be a hefty one.
