Jack Cleveland Casino Accused of Violating Wage Laws
For Immediate Release / Advertising Material
November 15, 2023 -- A putative class and collective action lawsuit is pending against Jack Cleveland Casino for allegedly failing to pay its tipped employees properly under federal law and, as a result, under state law.
The lawsuit seeks to recover unpaid wages for tipped employees who worked at Jack Cleveland Casino within the last three years. Eligible persons who want to join this action can submit a Consent to Join form to participate in the litigation.
The complaint alleges that Jack Cleveland Casino violated its employees’ rights by failing to inform tipped employees of the required tip credit provisions before paying them a sub-minimum wage. As a result, the complaint alleges, Jack Cleveland Casino cannot rely on the FLSA's "tip credit" provision and pay employees a sub-minimum base wage. The complaint seeks as damages the difference between the base wage and the full minimum wage for all hours worked by employees during the applicable time period, and an additional equal amount as liquidated damages.
The case is Prime v. Jack Cleveland Casino LLC, Case No. 1:23-cv-02216, pending in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio.
