Restaurant Employees

Bronson Lipsky represents restaurant employees in New York City, elsewhere in New York and in New Jersey to recover for them the wages the restaurants refuse to pay.

Restaurant employees are some of the hardest workers but are sadly often the most victimized. Restaurants violate the law in a variety of ways: they do not pay their workers for all hours worked; they do not pay the minimum wage; they do not let their employees keep all of their tips; they do not pay their workers an extra hour at the minimum wage when they work ten hours in a day (called the “spread-of-hours pay”); and they do not pay overtime. This is wrong. And we fight to fix these wrongs.
