Have you been the victim of unfair labor practices while working for a Darden Restaurant? Consider joining the class action lawsuit.
Know Your Rights, You Have Options.
Many of the almost 168,000 restaurant workers at The Darden Restaurant Group, the world’s largest restaurant group, earn wages below the minimum wage — with tipped minimum wages as low at $2.13 an hour and non-tipped wages as low as $7.25 an hour. In addition, many workers are not compensated for time that they work off-the-clock or are not paid appropriate overtime wages. This lawsuit provides Darden’s current and former servers the opportunity to join together and seek back wages owed to them for the time spent doing general maintenance or preparatory duties that they performed for less than minimum wage.
