This is a class action on behalf of employees of PR Restaurant Management for shift jamming and failure to pay overtime.
Plaintiff had frequently worked over eight hours in a 24-hour workday: for example, working a shift in the late afternoon and evening hours and then returning early the next morning to work a day shift. Despite this, Defendant failed to compensate Plaintiff at 1 and ½ times her regular rate of pay for the overtime she worked. Furthermore, Defendant maintains a “no daily overtime” policy common to all non-exempt hourly paid employees at Defendant’s locations in the state of Nevada. Therefore, Plaintiff demands for herself and all Nevada Overtime Class Members the payment of one and one-half times their “regular rate” of pay for all hours worked in excess of eight hours during the relevant time period together with attorneys’ fees, costs, and interest as provided by law. Members of the class who have since quit or been discharged demand thirty days of pay as waiting penalties, together with attorney’s fees, costs, interest, and punitive damages, as provided by law.
Following extensive discussions regarding the strengths and weaknesses of their respective claims and with the assistance of the mediator, the Parties reached a class settlement through arms-length direct negotiations. The Honorable Judge Peterson granted final approval of the settlement in July of 2021. Settlement checks to Class Members were mailed in September of 2021.A copy of the complaint can be accessed here.
