Jahir v. Ryman Hospitality Properties, Inc., 14-1485

In an action brought by hotel servers against their employer, alleging violations of the tip-credit provision of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), 29 U.S.C. section 203(m), their collective bargaining agreement, and Maryland's Wage Payment and Collection Law, the district court's dismissal of the complaint is affirmed where plaintiffs concede that their wages do not fall below the statutory minimum, and the "the statutory language," of the FLSA, including section 203(m), "simply does not contemplate a claim for wages other than minimum or overtime wages."
