These servers are suing Captain George's Seafood Restaurant's Myrtle Beach location in federal court over their tips and being treated unfairly.
It's pretty common for employers to require servers to "tip out" other non-tipped employees at the end of the night; however, the company or management itself is not to have any part of those tips.
It doesn't matter how much you earn in tips," the lawyer for the servers, Andrew Biller, said. "Somebody could earn a thousand dollars in tips today. But, if the employer unlawfully took a dollar of that, then they're in trouble under the federal law."
Apparently the restaurant itself required employees to give a certain percentage of their tips "to the house" which would then go into their actual salary paychecks or straight to pay the managers.
The servers are asking for unpaid wages, overtime pay and damages but the company is denying all allegations.
We hope for justice for these servers!
