Perry’s Steakhouse – All Texas Locations
On January 11, 2022, we filed a lawsuit against Perry’s Steakhouse on behalf of a group of current and former servers. The lawsuit alleges that Perry’s Steakhouse failed to adhere to the federal law regarding the payment of tips to tipped employees and therefore Perry’s Steakhouse is prevented from paying its servers the sub-minimum “server wage.”
More specifically, lawsuit alleges that Perry’s illegally (1) retained a portion of its server’s tips from the tip pool; (2) required servers to pay for uniforms (e.g. aprons, pepper mills, crumbers, etc.); and (3) paid servers $2.13 per hour to perform non-tipped duties. The lawsuit alleges as a result of Perry’s illegal conduct, Perry’s is prevented from paying its servers the sub-minimum “server wage.”
If we are successful in proving these claims, Perry’s must pay each server who joins the lawsuit an additional $5.12 per hour for each hour worked in the past three years, plus all misappropriated tips, plus “double damages.” Finally, if successful on these claims, the lawsuit asks the Court to award an amount of attorney’s fees and costs for Herrmann Law’s representation of the servers in this matter.
Finally, the lawsuit seeks to include all Perry’s servers who worked at any of the Perry’s Steakhouse locations in Texas. Any server who wants to be included in the lawsuit must sign and return a consent form. For more information, including how to be part of the lawsuit, please call us at: 817-479-9229
