HUNTINGTON — A bartender has filed a class-action lawsuit against a restaurant operator, citing alleged failure to pay minimum wage.
Shannon Brammer, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint in Cabell Circuit Court against Giffords Inc. d/b/a Davis' Place alleging that it violated the West Virginia Minimum Wage and Maximum Hours Standards for Employment.
According to the complaint, Brammer alleges that during her tenure with the defendant between May 2013 and July 20, 2017, she was paid less than the minimum wage required by law. The plaintiff holds Giffords Inc. d/b/a Davis' Place responsible because it allegedly failed to provide meal breaks, deducted one-half hour per shift from employees' paychecks for alleged meal breaks they never took, required employees to perform off-clock work and failed to provide notice of the FLSA's tip credit provisions.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks all unpaid wages, with interest, costs, attorney's fees and such other relief deemed fair and proper. She is represented by Hoyt Glazer of Law Office of Hoyt Glazer PLLC in Huntington.
