Hard Rock Café


Outten & Golden filed a lawsuit against Hard Rock Café in Times Square on behalf of a former bartender, asserting a wage and hour claim for unlawful tip retention for himself and other private party service staff. The Complaint alleged that Hard Rock Café charged its private party customers a mandatory gratuity, and failed to pay the full mandatory gratuity to its service staff who worked those private parties. 

The case was resolved on a classwide basis in October 2011 for $240,000 and the court approved the settlement on February 27, 2012.
