    I didn’t think people got paid overtime in the restaurant business.

      Didn’t someone just sue Kandi for the same thing at OLG? They may have a case.

        I don’t think Johnnie actually worked at OLG though. He says he came up with the concept and was more like a business partner.

      Viv I’m pretty sure River Lee Holdings LLC is K. Michelle’s holding company for the restaurant jus like the article says.

    Sounds like he was paid salary which would not give you overtime. Usually when your paid salary you make more than the average hourly wage but the downside is you will have to work more hours and not get paid overtime for those extra hours.

    I don’t think this person has a case. Chefs generally don’t get overtime pay.

    Salaried employees can work over 40 with no extra pay, hourly employees are entitled to overtime if they go over 40. Chefs are generally not salaried employees unless that was negotiated up front. Most restaurants avoid paying overtime because they cut the labor before an employee accrues any overtime hours due to natural decline in business as the day goes on. He may have a case if his employee contract is not salary.
