Court Certifies Nationwide Collective of Servers at Mastro’s Restaurants

Today the United States District Court for the District of Columbia conditionally certified a collective consisting of “All employees who worked as servers and received an hourly wage less than $7.25 an hour at any Mastro’s location in the United States from May 22, 2015 to the present.” The servers are represented by Winebrake & Santillo and co-counsel Migliaccio & Rathod LLP. A court-approved notice will be mailed to these servers in the coming weeks giving them the opportunity to join this case.

In this same order, the judge also denied Mastro’s attempt to compel this case to arbitration. A copy of the Court’s order and opinion are available here.
