Restaurant Chain Accused Of Requiring Employees To Work Before They Clock In

Outback Steakhouse has been hit with a FLSA lawsuit accusing it of requiring employees to attend pre-shift meetings that could last up to 2 hours before they clock-in for their shift. The plaintiffs are current and former employees of the chain who allege that they were required to perform work without compensation before their official shifts began.

In a previous post we reported on alleged practices of employers who require warehouse and retail employees to remain on the premises after they clock out to undergo security inspections before they are permitted to leave work.

Requiring workers to be at work before, or after, clock out, may violate state and federal wage laws. If you are required to be at work before your shift starts, or to stay after your shift ends, you may be entitled to damages and should call the employment lawyers at Alan Lescht and Associates, P.C., for a free phone consultation to go over your case.
