The Chopin Law Firm Represents Employees of The Blind Pelican in Lawsuit
Recently, we at The Chopin Law Firm worked with The Stiegler Law Firm filed a Collective Class and Class Action lawsuit on behalf of all employees who have worked at The Blind Pelican Restaurant in New Orleans, Louisiana. We represent all servers, food runners, busboys, oyster shuckers, bartenders, cooks, and kitchen staff who have been employed at The Blind Pelican for the past three years. Our firm conducted an investigation and found shocking information regarding the treatment of these employees. Many of our findings regarding the practices of The Blind Pelican were unlawful, unfair, and exploitive of its employees.
Not only were employees denied minimum wage and overtime compensation due to an unlawful tip credit policy, they were also forced to pay for beverages they didn’t ask for or consume and denied their final paycheck. The Blind Pelican also failed to maintain accurate records in violation of federal and state wage and hour laws. Our New Orleans personal injury law firm is committed to obtaining damages for our clients, with the premise they were not paid all tips and wages owed to them. We intend to seek justice on behalf of the employees who were exposed to such deliberately unlawful and illegal practices.
