On November 20, 2012, Fitapelli & Schaffer filed a class action lawsuit against The Riese Organization, Inc., who owns and/or operates 10 T.G.I. Friday’s in Manhattan.  T.G.I. Friday’s is a popular restaurant brand with more than 500 locations worldwide. This lawsuit alleges that T.G.I. Friday’s failed to pay proper minimum wages, overtime pay, spread-of-hours pay, and call in pay to servers, bussers, runners, bartenders, barbacks and other tipped workers as required under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and New York Labor Law. Additionally, this lawsuit seeks to recover damages for unlawful deductions from paychecks and failure to keep accurate records in violation of the New York Labor Law.  We are seeking to represent all tipped workers, including, servers, bussers, runners, bartenders, and barbacks employed at T.G.I. Friday’s in Manhattan from November 2006 to the Present.  Eligible employees should call us to join the case. For additional information, please visit our case website at www.TGIFridayslawsuit.com.
