Former NJ diner employees claim they were underpaid, lawsuit states
Three former employees of a Hamilton diner are suing the restaurant, claiming they were paid less than minimum wage and were never compensated for several overtime hours they worked.
Gustavo Salazar, Alsy Molina and Anibal Orlando Salazar filed a lawsuit in Mercer County Superior Court against "Fame," a diner located on Whitehorse Road, NJ Advance Media has reported.
The lawsuit claims the three former employees worked 66-hour work weeks, but did not receive overtime pay and were only paid $200 a week, according to the article. In addition, Salazar, who worked as a busboy and a dishwasher from 2011 to 2016, claims he never received more than $40 a week in tips, the article states.
The employees are seeking thousands of dollars in compensation for the hours they claim they were never paid for, NJ Advance Media reported.
