YOUR RIGHT

Federal law prohibits Perry’s or anyone from discriminating or retaliating against you for exercising your legal right to join this lawsuit or file a separate lawsuit.

Why Am I Receiving This Notice?

You received this notice because Perry’s records show that you fall within plaintiffs’ proposed class, defined as all current and former servers who worked at any of Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille locations in Colorado, Alabama, North Carolina, or Florida and who were paid a direct cash subminimum hourly wage in the past three (3) years.

You may be able to make a claim and join this lawsuit if:

  • You are a current or former server who worked, or works, at any one of Perry’s restaurant locations in Colorado, Alabama, North Carolina, or Florida between February 16, 2018 and today; and
  • You were paid a subminimum hourly wage and required to (1) participate in a tip pool, (2) pay for mandatory uniforms, (3) pay for business-related items or expenses (check presenters, pens, or wine keys), or (4) perform non-tipped side-work duties at subminimum hourly wage.

This notice is intended to advise you about your legal rights, how your legal rights may be affected by this lawsuit, and inform you of your right to join this lawsuit.

What Is This Lawsuit About?

Lance Green and Anderson Khalid are former servers who worked at the Perry’s location in Colorado and Alabama, respectively, who filed this lawsuit against Perry’s, individually and on behalf of other current and former servers who were paid a subminimum hourly wage plus tips.

Mr. Green and Mr. Khalid allege that Perry’s violated federal law by requiring servers to: (1) participate in a tip pool that was not fully distributed solely among tipped employees, (2) pay for mandatory uniforms and other business-related expenses, and (3) perform non-tipped side work while being paid at a subminimum hourly wage. Mr. Green and Mr. Khalid allege that Perry’s owes them and the other servers back wages in the form of unpaid minimum wage, liquidated damages (double damages), plus their attorneys’ fees and costs for themselves and all similarly situated servers. Perry’s denies Mr. Green and Mr. Khalid’s allegations. Perry’s disputes the allegations or any liability arising from the allegations.
