Chickie's and Pete's facing lawsuits, probe over pay
#1 Feb 25, 2013
Tip skimming from employees who work on tips? A gratuitous good faith letter to employees talking about skimmed tips the same month the lawsuit is filed?
To top it off. The Chickie and Pete's type bars are frequented frequently by union employees because they are some of the only ones that can afford those places on a regular basis.
But from what I've heard and seen of the Philadelphia area restaraunt industry/management this is par for the course. They think they are above the law or excluded from regular employee regulations treating them as subcontractors.
I saw where the lawsuit included that Chickie and Petes didn't include cleaning supplies including vacums to properly clean areas that needed a vacum. It sounds like they are treating staff as contractors.

Add in the fact that wait staff employees are required to pay the service charge when customers pay with credit cards out of their own pockets and you can see how lowdown his practices are, I'd chalk up the greediness of his to his not so secret coke habit.hes also found a loophole to still take a percentage of wait staff employees tips. His attempt to justify taking their tip money is saying the money is owed for having the benefit of being allowed to wait tables in such a busy restaurant, unbelievable.......but true nonetheless. One can only hope karma gives him what he deserves, though I doubt it will as millionaires can always buy loopholes.
