Cracker Barrel Unpaid Wages Investigation
Hayber, McKenna & Dinsmore is investigating Cracker Barrel for minimum wage violations related to its Connecticut servers and bartenders.
I. What is this investigation about?
Minimum Wage. Restaurants must pay their service employees the full minimum wage., currently $11.00/hr., for their entire shift if they make those employees do side-work and fail to pay the side-work at the full service, or tip-credit minimum wage for all hours worked, including side-work. We allege that this practice violates the law.
II. Where can I learn more about the law?
Click here. The Connecticut Department of Labor’s Gratuities in the Restaurant Industry webpage has more information about what constitutes “service” and “non-service” work (side-work).
III. Where can I go if I have questions or information that might help the investigation?
