New York, NY: A Class Action lawsuit has been filed in the Superior Court of Fulton County on behalf of a class of persons who worked as Suite Attendants at Philips Arena, The Georgia Dome, and/or the Atlanta Motor Speedway (collectively the "Venues") from January 1, 2006 to present. The defendants are Levy Premium Foodservice Limited Partnership d/b/a Atlanta Sports Catering, and Compass Group North America d/b/a Levy Restaurants in Atlanta, Georgia.
This action arises out of defendants' wrongful failure to pay
Plaintiffs and the Class the 20% service charge (the "Service Charge") defendants automatically add to each bill for food and beverages purchased by suite owners and patrons at the hundreds of events held each year from 2006 to present at these Venues.
The Complaint alleges that defendants have publicly represented to the Suite Attendants, and to suite owners and patrons that the Service Charge is paid to the "suite employees" in the form of compensation. The Complaint further alleges that Levy has failed to pay the Service Charge to the Suite Attendants and instead retains this money for its own benefit. The lawsuit seeks class action status, monetary damages and injunctive relief.
