Solis v. Lorraine Enterprises, Inc., 13-1685

In this federal minimum wage case, the Secretary of Labor charges that a restaurant took advantage of the reduced minimum wage exception without complying with the requirements. Summary judgment in the Secretary's favor against the restaurant and individual defendants is affirmed, where: 1) waiters had not received proper notice of the restaurant's intent to credit their tips against the minimum wage; 2) deductions taken from waiters' pay are invalid for Fair Labor Standards Act purposes; and 3) defendants admitted a string of material facts strongly suggestive of individual liability.
