SAN FRANCISCO — An employee has filed a class-action lawsuit against Ministry of Taste LLC, Red Dog Restaurant and numerous unnamed individuals, citing alleged violation of Workers' Compensation acts.
Jose Us-Chab, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on April 13 in the San Francisco County Superior Court against the defendants alleging that they violated the state labor code.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he regularly worked over 40 hours per week without receiving proper overtime compensation. Instead, he was paid at his regular rate for all hours worked. The plaintiff holds Ministry of Taste and Red Dog Restaurant responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to pay overtime premium rates for all hours worked in excess of 40 per week and failed to provide timely and accurate wage statements.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory, punitive and incidental damages, plus penalties, interest, attorney's fees, costs of suit and such other just and proper relief. He is represented by David Yeremian and David Keledjian of David Yeremian & Associates Inc. in Glendale.
