This is a class action on behalf of employees of Golden Steer Steakhouse for shift jamming and failure to pay overtime wages.
Plaintiff alleged that he was scheduled to work shifts until late in the evening hours and then was required to return for his next shift the following morning to work a day shift, without having an uninterrupted period between shifts of 16 hours or more. An employee who works a shift with less than 16-hours in between the end of one shift and the beginning of the next shift (“jammed shift”) must be paid overtime premium pay of one and ½ times his hourly rate of pay for hours over eight. Plaintiff seeks payment for the wages owed, waiting time penalties, and injunctive relief under Nevada law.
The Parties engaged in extensive discussions regarding their respective positions and exchanged information and representative data needed to properly evaluate the merits of the claims alleged. Following those discussions, the Parties reached a class action settlement which was approved by the Honorable Kathleen Delaney on August 10, 2021. A copy of Judge Delaney’s Order Granting Final Approval of Settlement can be accessed below. Settlement checks were mailed to Class Members in October of 2021.
