An hourly employee has sued Razors Edge Pizza, Inc. over claims that the Domino’s Pizza franchisee failed to pay her appropriately for overtime work.
According to the proposed collective action, the defendant operates several Domino’s restaurants in Little Rock. The case says the plaintiff works at one location where she, among other responsibilities, delivers orders, prepares food and cleans the store. Depending on what duties are being performed, the defendant pays the woman at different hourly rates, the suit claims. Specifically, the plaintiff claims she receives $5.50 per hour while delivering orders but is paid more for in-store work. When it comes to overtime wages, however, the suit alleges the defendants maintain a practice of paying the plaintiff and other workers one-and-a-half times their lowest hourly rates regardless of what work is being performed. Consequently, the woman allegedly clocked between five and 10 overtime hours during most weeks at the restaurant without lawful compensation.
