Firm Files Class Action Lawsuit Against Le Pain Quotidien on Behalf of Servers for Tip Pool and Wage Violations

Recently, The Law Office of Christopher Q. Davis filed a Collective Class and Class Action Lawsuit on behalf of all tipped Servers employed at Le Pain Quotidien's restaurants throughout the United States.  As our Firm's investigation revealed, and as we alleged in the Class Action Complaint, LPQ’s Servers were denied minimum wage and overtime compensation pursuant to an unlawful “tip credit” policy, denied lawful “spread of hours” pay, denied lawful reimbursement for the cost of laundering required uniforms, subjected to LPQ's unlawful practice of tip misappropriation, and subjected to LPQ's unlawful practice of failing to maintain accurate records in violation of federal and state wage and hour laws.  Our Firm will seek damages for LPQ's failure to pay Servers all tips and wages owed to them, and will also seek penalties.
