Class action status is being sought in a lawsuit filed against The IHOP restaurant in St. Charles, Illinois on behalf of hundreds of current and former employees who have worked at the 125 Smith Road location since it opened in 2002. The suit alleges violations of the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act, the Illinois Wage Payment and Collection Act and the Illinois Minimum Wage Law, and claims that the restaurant has been illegally deducting money from the plaintiff's paychecks for restaurant meals never eaten and lunch breaks not taken. According to the suit, the company deducts $2.75 per shift from each employee's paycheck to pay for employee meals from IHOP and 30 minutes from each employee's timecard for meal breaks regardless of whether the employee eats an IHOP meal or takes a break during his or her shift. The suit further alleges that many employees were not paid for overtime hours.
