Re: Potential Lawsuit for Unpaid Wages at Johnny’s New York Style Pizza
I represent employees in Georgia and across the country in lawsuits to reclaim unpaid wages from their employers. I am currently investigating reports of wage theft at Johnny’s New York Style Pizza restaurants (“Johnny’s Pizza”), which operate throughout the state of Georgia. If you worked at Johnny’s Pizza as a tipped employee during the last three years, you may be entitled to unpaid wages.
I have reason to believe that Johnny’s Pizza does not pay its employees properly for all the hours its employees work. Specifically, I believe that Johnny’s Pizza requires tipped employees, like servers, to share tips with non-tipped employees, like dishwashers, and requires tipped employees to perform non-tipped job duties during more than 20% of their hours. Under federal law, employers are prohibited from requiring tipped employees (those who customarily receive a direct wage below the statutory minimum in addition to tips received from customers, or “front of the house” employees, like servers) from sharing tips with non-tipped employees (“back of the house” employees, like dishwashers, and managers) and from requiring tipped employees to perform more than 20% of their hours doing non-tipped work. If you worked as a tipped employee at Johnny’s Pizza and were subject to these practices, I would like the opportunity to speak with you about your experience while working at Johnny’s Pizza.
If you would like to speak with an attorney about the possibility of recovering unpaid wages, please contact me directly at 404-873-8048.
