Middle District of North Carolina Approves $1,725,000 Settlement for IHOP Servers Represented by Winebrake & Santillo

Yesterday, Judge Catherine C. Eagles of the Middle District of North Carolina approved a $1,725,000 settlement covering over 1,500 servers at 49 IHOP restaurants located throughout the south.  The servers were represented by Winebrake & Santillo and co-counsel Migliaccio & Rathod LLP and Whitfield Bryson & Mason LLP.  The servers allege that the operator of the IHOP restaurants, CFRA, LLC, violated federal wage laws by paying them a tipped minimum wage of $2.13 per hour and requiring them to perform significant side-work tasks such as cleaning the restaurant and rolling silverware.
