The El Nacho Grande chain, with restaurants in Cincinnati and Dayton, faces a U.S. Department of Labor lawsuit after Wage and Hour Divi­sion (WHD) investigators found evidence that the company’s pay policies violate the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

The suit seeks $285,000 in back wages for 171 workers.

The WHD alleges the chain failed to pay minimum wage and proper overtime because it paid a flat weekly rate regardless of how many hours employees worked. Additionally, WHD claims the restaurants illegally de­­ducted uniform costs from em­­­ployees’ wages and didn’t pay them for hours worked before and after scheduled shifts.
