glasses in fancy restaurantOn July 11, 2018, our firm filed a Complaint against P.F. Chang’s China Bistro, Inc. (P.F. Chang’s). The Complaint alleges that P.F. Chang’s unlawfully denied minimum wage payments to its Servers. Plaintiffs filed their Complaint on behalf of themselves and other servers who worked for P.F. Chang’s within the three (3) years prior to July 2018.

The Complaint alleges that P.F. Chang’s intentionally underpaid servers by paying them below the minimum wage when they performed work unrelated to their tipped occupation and when they spent more than 20% of their shift performing untipped work. Plaintiffs allege that this is a direct violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.

Our firm seeks to recover unpaid overtime wages and liquidated (double) damages for all of these employees. This case seeks to include servers who worked at P.F. Chang’s across the country. Servers who worked in states that do not permit employers to pay servers using “tip-credit” minimum wage, such as California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Montana, Minnesota and Alaska are excluded.

If you worked for P.F. Chang’s as a server, or performed similar job duties at any time between July 11, 2015 and the present and were not paid the correct minimum wage, you may have a claim. To learn more about this case, please contact us.
