Middle District of Pennsylvania Approves Settlement for Restaurant Servers Represented by Winebrake & Santillo Seeking Unpaid Wages

Yesterday, Judge John E. Jones, III of the Middle District of Pennsylvania approved a $185,000 collective action settlement for servers at Quaker Steak & Lube Restaurants in Mechanicsburg and York Pennsylvania.  Winebrake & Santillo represented the 101 servers in this case who alleged that the restaurant violated federal and Pennsylvania wage and hour law by requiring them to share a portion of their tips with individuals working as Expediters (or “Expos”).  The servers alleged that the Expediters were really back of the house staff who did not have sufficient customer contact to receive tips from the servers.
