Snooze HIC LLC is facing a proposed collective and class action accusing the defendant of labor law violations. The plaintiff, a former server at a California restaurant owned by the defendant, alleges she was deprived of lawful minimum and overtime wages. The lawsuit claims the defendant had a “consistent policy” of requiring servers to work over 40 hours per week without lawful time-and-a-half compensation and didn’t pay them at least the full minimum hourly wage for all hours worked.
The lawsuit further alleges that the defendant regularly failed to pay employees all earned wages after termination or resignation. California law requires that employers pay discharged employees all owed wages immediately or within 72 hours of resignation, the lawsuit says.
The lawsuit seeks to cover two proposed classes: servers employed by any of the defendant’s United States restaurants on or after July 9, 2015, and servers employed by any of the defendant’s California restaurants on or after July 9, 2014.
