Happy Lamb Hot Pot workers welcome wage complaint settlement
GBLS Reports that Happy Lamb Hot Pot workers have settled the Wage Theft case.
In what advocates say is a happy resolution to a problem that workers are often too fearful to report, 14 former employees of Happy Lamb Hot Pot, which has locations in Central Square and Chinatown, recently reached a settlement of wage theft claims with the restaurant.
The employees alleged in October 2018 that management, among other things, stole tips, did not pay minimum wage or overtime, and retaliated against workers who complained.
“Defendants willfully, flagrantly, and routinely violated federal and state wage and hour laws,” the lawsuit claimed.
