handling restaurant billOn June 15, 2017, our firm filed a Complaint against Chesapeake Bay Seafood House Associates, L.L.C. (Chesapeake Bay Seafood House). Chesapeake Bay Seafood House operates multiple Chili’s and On the Border restaurants in Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia.

The Complaint alleged that Chesapeake Bay Seafood House unlawfully denied minimum wage payments to its servers and bartenders who worked at its Chili’s and On the Border restaurants. The Complaint alleges that although Chesapeake Bay Seafood House required its servers and bartenders to perform the work of hourly employees, they were only paid an hourly tip-credit wage rate. The Complaint also alleges that servers and bartenders were required to report to work before the restaurant opened, and stay after the restaurant had closed, to perform cleaning and maintenance tasks, but were only paid the tip-credit rate.

If you worked as a server or bartender at a Maryland restaurant performing non-tipped duties and were not paid the minimum wage, you may have a claim.
