The New York Times has reported that Urasawa, one of the country’s best sushi restaurants, has been sued by its back of the house employees for wage and overtime violations.

The New York Times article reports that, according to a California Labor Department investigation and former employees, kitchen workers at the Beverly Hills restaurant are routinely denied overtime pay and forbidden from taking breaks.

A lawyer for one of the workers noted that, “people might expect paying so much means that workers are getting paid.”  In New York, attorneys have filed lawsuits in the last few years against some of the best restaurants in the city.  Some of the highest rated restaurants that have been hit with similar lawsuits in New York include restaurants owned by Mario Batali and Sparks Steakhouse.
