Unfair Wage and Labor Practices
Your Employer May Not Be Paying You Fairly
Make Sure You Get the Wages You Deserve
There may be nothing more fundamental to the American way of life than this adage: A hard day's work for a fair wage. Yet some employers will short-change reduced hourly wage employees that work for tips by forcing them to perform unfair amounts of non-tipped work. Call & Gentry Law Group has experienced attorneys to fight for the wages you have earned and deserve.
Real Attorneys Representing Real People
Call & Gentry Law Group's Chip Gentry was one of the lead attorneys in a nationally recognized wage and hour class action, Fast v. Applebee's International, Inc. Chip and his team represented over 5,600 servers and bartenders; "tipped employees" that claimed Applebee's failed to properly pay them wages by violating what is known as the "20% rule." The employees in the federal lawsuit claimed that they spent far more than 20% of their shifts performing non-tipped work or general preparation and maintenance. After a 6 year fight that involved extensive litigation, extensive testimony under oath in many different states, review of tens of thousands pages of documents, and an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court and back, the case was successfully resolved by way of settlement.
