UPDATE: Federal Judge Approves Collective Action Settlement
Trinity IHOP Owes Servers Pay, Federal Class Action Alleges
Migliaccio & Rathod LLP currently represents a former IHOP server who worked at Trinity Restaurant Group in a federal court lawsuit that alleges Trinity forced servers to attend unpaid mandatory meetings and also to spend a large amount of time on non-tipped earning side work. This is illegal, the suit says, because it violates state and federal minimum wage laws.
