Second Most Expensive Restaurant In The Country Accused Of Short-Changing Its Employees

High-end Beverly Hills sushi restaurant, Urasawa is facing a $65,785 lawsuit from the California Labor Commission because of unpaid wages.

According to Labor Commissioner Julie A. Su, three employees are owed $38,585 in unpaid wages after being required to work in excess of 10 hours a day without overtime pay.

Former employee, Heriberto Zamora claims he was fired 9 hours into a shift after he asked to go home to recover from a high fever and has yet to receive his final paycheck, in direct violation of California Employment Law.   If an employer discharges an employee, the wages earned and unpaid at the time of discharge are due and payable immediately.  "Labor Code section 203 imposes waiting time penalties of one day’s wages for each day, up to 30 days, that an employer willfully fails to pay wages at the end of employment."  Also according to the State of California Department of Industrial Relations, "employees shall not work more than eight hours in any workday or more than 40 hours in any workweek unless he or she receives one and one-half times his or her regular rate of pay for all hours worked over 8 hours in any workday and over 40 hours in the workweek."

It is appalling that a restaurant, touted as the 2nd most expensive restaurant in the country (according to Daily Meal)  would be found short-changing its employees their wages.

If your employer owes you wages and/or has failed to pay you overtime, please give my office, The Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman a call at (877) 449-8898 for a free consultation.
