Bonefish Grill, LLC and its parent company are the defendants in a proposed class action filed by two former employees of the restaurant who claim they were misclassified as exempt and not paid proper overtime wages. Both plaintiffs say they were employed as managers, but spent most of their time performing the same duties as non-exempt employees, including waiting on customers, preparing and serving food, clearing tables, and cleaning. They argue that they were regularly scheduled to work 60 hours in a week, but were not paid overtime wages for hours worked above 40. According to the complaint, “Defendants’ unlawful conduct has been widespread, repeated, and consistent.”
