A group of New York Domino's franchisees will pay $448,000 to settle a wage theft suit brought forth by delivery workers who claimed they were paid below the tipped minimum wage, were not paid for overtime hours, and were not being fully reimbursed for car expenses.
According to the Huffington Post, these violations happened from 2007-13. The investigation was led by the state's Attorney General, Eric T. Schneiderman.
The payout will be divided among 750 current and former Domino's employees. According to Schneiderman, the franchisees have admitted to the violations. Domino's itself wasn't named in the suit, and the company said it wasn't aware of the allegations.
In addition to the settlement, the franchisees involved will be required to create a grievance procedure for its employees, and also to train managers on labor law and submit reports to the Attorney General's office displaying compliance, the story said.
