What is it like working as a Restaurant Manager?
Badal, and Robert P. Andrews, on behalf of themselves and all others similarly situated, Plaintiffs-Appellants, v. November 02, Before: Montpelier briefedKatherine A.
Trumpeter argued and briefedJohn Y. We affirm in part and reverse and remand in part. Facts As this appeal reviews the grant of a summary judgment motion for the defendant, we view the facts in the light most favorable to the plaintiffs.
Defendant Outback operates a chain of steakhouses. All Outback restaurants hire employees into the two positions at issue here: Servers at Outback perform the traditional tasks of waiters and waitresses.
They take orders, deliver food and drinks, and take care of other customer demands. Hosts primarily greet customers, pass out menus, and seat the customers.
The parties dispute how often hosts perform this latter list of tasks, but the plaintiffs accept that the hosts do perform them rarely.
Plaintiffs in the instant case were servers and hosts at Outback at various times from to Outback forbids hosts from taking tips from customers. Servers are allowed to receive tips.
Management then distributes that entire pool of money between the hosts, bus people, and bartenders who worked that shift. In practice, the three percent of total sales tip-out requirement routinely required servers to tip out more than fifteen percent of the tips they received in a given shift.
The plaintiffs have produced evidence that over a two week period, the three percent gross sales tip-out requirement resulted in Outback servers tipping out In an affidavit, an employee of the defendant asserts that when respective shares of the tip out are included, the plaintiff hosts and servers never received less than minimum wage for a work week during their employment at Outback.
The plaintiffs do not rebut this assertion. The parties dispute whether Outback provided sufficient notice regarding its intent to take a tip credit to the plaintiffs.
We discuss the factual details relating to the notice issue in section II. Discussion On appeal, plaintiffs make three primary arguments. We must view the facts and all inferences drawn from the facts in the light most favorable to the nonmoving party.
When confronted with a properly-supported motion for summary judgment, the nonmoving party must set forth specific facts showing that there is a genuine issue for trial. Every employer shall pay to each of his employees who in any workweek is engaged in commerce or in the production of goods for commerce, or is employed in an enterprise engaged in commerce or in the production of goods for commerce, wages at the following rates: The previous sentence [establishing the tip credit] shall not apply with respect to any tipped employee unless 1 such employee has been informed by the employer of the provisions of this subsection, and 2 all tips received by such employee have been retained by the employee, except that this subsection shall not be construed to prohibit the pooling of tips among employees who customarily and regularly receive tips.
To determine whether Outback satisfied this notice requirement, we must answer two questions: The Bonham court held that an employer did not provide the required notice where: In terms of information about the Act, the record shows that none of the provisions of that Act were explained to plaintiffs either when they were hired or during their training period.
Witnesses for defendants made vague references to conversations about the minimum wage, but no witness could testify to any specific conversation with any of the plaintiffs. The evidence shows that the poster was not prominently displayed, employees were not directed to it and its contents were not introduced at trial.
Under these circumstances, the poster does not satisfy the notice requirement. As discussed below, the content of the written notice provided by Outback here satisfies the express requirements of subsection m. No material issue of fact exists as to whether plaintiff Kilgore received this notice.
The magistrate judge correctly granted summary judgment on her notice claim. As to plaintiffs Madison, Badal, and Andrews, a material issue of fact exists as to whether they received the written notice from Outback; summary judgment on their notice claims was inappropriate.
In support of its motion for summary judgment, Outback submitted an affidavit from the managing partner of the Outback restaurant where plaintiffs Kilgore and Madison worked. At the time of the affidavit, Kilgore and Madison were plaintiffs in this suit; plaintiffs Badal and Andrews were not.
