wmagazine.com - Chantal Martineau

Michael White and Chris Cannon of Alto are the latest restaurateurs to be taken to court on allegations of labor law violations.

According to a press release, the two are being sued by three current employees, who say that: "[D]espite their great success, which Cannon and White achieved on the backs of their waitstaff, they required their waitstaff to share their hard-earned tips with tip ineligible workers, including the General Manager of Alto, that they unlawfully took a tip credit and paid less than the full minimum wage, that they denied their waitstaff spread-of-hours pay, and that they required them to purchase and launder required uniforms."
