Seattle-based Pyramid Breweries has agreed to pay $1.3 million to settle a lawsuit brought by an employee claiming that employees at three Northern California brew pubs were denied meal and rest breaks.

Pyramid, which operates brew pubs in Berkeley, Sacramento and Walnut Creek in addition to Seattle and Portland, Ore., entered into a memorandum of understanding with former employee Austin C. Taylor.

Taylor filed his suit in California Superior Court, Sacramento County, arguing that Pyramid did not provide meal and rest breaks to employees. The settlement covers current and former servers, bartenders, cooks and dishwashers employed between April 30, 2003, and Sept. 30, 2007.

According to the settlement, which is subject to court approval, each employee will receive a pro rata portion of the total, depending on the number of hours he or she worked.
