Hard Rock workers sue over tip pooling

Two Hard Rock Cafe employees have filed a lawsuit against the chain alleging that it improperly pooled tips and claimed tip credits in violation of federal labor laws and Florida’s state constitution.

The workers are seeking class-action status for the lawsuit, which argues that, because of the tip pooling, Hard Rock was not entitled to seek tip credits to offset portions of the minimum wages it was required to pay servers and bartenders between Jan. 14, 2006, and July 2009.
