Case Summary

Plaintiffs were formerly employed as servers and/or bartenders at Harry’s Bar and The Owl Tree. In Plaintiffs’ First Amended Complaint, they alleged certain wage and hour claims individually and on behalf of other current and former employees of Harry’s Bar, The Owl Tree, and/or Bruno’s. Specifically, Plaintiffs alleged that they and putative class members, largely minimum wage workers, were not provided all of the meal periods and rest breaks to which they were legally entitled, did not receive overtime wages, did not receive all wages upon discharge, did not received accurate wage statements, and did not receive compensation for all hours worked. Plaintiffs further alleged that Defendants failed to comply with the San Francisco Paid Sick Leave Ordinance and the San Francisco Health Care Security Ordinance, violated Business & Professions Code section 17200, and violated the Private Attorneys General Act of 2004 (PAGA). Defendants deny all of Plaintiffs’ claims. Now, the parties propose to settle this matter with a settlement fund of $562,200 to be distributed entirely among the Class of 128 workers, and to pay their litigation fees and costs and PAGA contribution to the state. The recovery represents an exceptional result, amounting to nearly 80% of the Class’ estimated full recovery of wages and non-wages (other than PAGA relief, which is presumed minimal), if the case were fully litigated and successful – and will be paid less than a year after the lawsuit was filed.
