As you can see from our “Cases and Investigation” page, we have been representing a group of 15 servers from a few Chili’s restaurants in PA and NJ. This case only covers 15 servers because the federal court ruled that the servers were not allowed to pursue their claims on a “class action” basis due to the language in arbitration agreements the servers were forced to sign as a condition of employment. Anyway, we were able to reach a settlement for our 15 hard-working clients. On September 29, 2017, the federal court approved the settlement as fair, and I just read an informative article about the settlement in the Allentown Morning Call. Here is a link to the Morning Call article: http://www.mcall.com/news/police/mc-biz-chilis-server-wage-settlement-20171002-story.html.
I also noticed that Catherine Ruckelshaus of the National Employment Law Project (“NELP”) is quoted in the Morning Call article. NELP is a terrific organization, and you can visit its website by clicking here: http://www.nelp.org/
