Are you a waitress or waiter being paid unfairly for the work you do?

Are you a waitress or waiter who is required to do "side work" - but isn't paid minimum wage to do that work? The Fair Labor Standards Act may protect you and require your employer to pay you wages you're owed. A waitress in North Carolina recently sued her employer, alleging that "the company paid her and hundreds of other workers $2.13 an hour but required them to do side work for which they should have received minimum wage." And they aren't the only ones. Applebee's, Mario Batali, and the New York Yankees have faced similar lawsuits in the past. In 2012, the Supreme Court sided with workers when it "deferred to Labor Department rules, which hold that tipped workers are entitled to the full minimum wage for so-called side jobs or non-tipped work if they spent more than 20 percent of their time on such duties."
