Waiters Get Prime Cut of $446,000 Wage Settlement From Wolfgang’s Steakhouse

Wolfgang’s Steakhouse, rated as one of the best steakhouses in New York City, will pay its current and former waitstaff $446,500 to resolve claims that the restaurant committed wage violations and engaged in improper pay practices.

United States District Court Judge Analisa Torres issued a judgment approving the settlement agreement between Wolfgang’s Steakhouse and current and former tipped employees of the restaurants which reimburses the workers for violations of waiters rights under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and New York Labor Law.  The lawsuit, which was brought as a class action on behalf of servers, bartenders, bar-backs, and coat check employees, alleged that the restaurant failed to properly pay its workers for all hours worked, overtime, spread of hours pay, failed to reimburse their workers for the cost of their uniforms, and misappropriated tips.

The settlement with the restaurant covers 130 servers who worked at Wolfgang’s Park Avenue and Tribeca locations between February 9, 2009 and December 16, 2013 and provides payment for the restaurant workers’ attorneys.
