The owners of Mythos, a Greek restaurant in Queens, have agreed to pay $329,000 in back pay and liquidated damages to 21 employees following a Fair Labor Standards Act investigation by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division.
According to the government’s complaint, waiters didn’t receive hourly wages, working for tips alone. Busboys and kitchen staff received a flat rate per shift, but no overtime.
In addition to the back pay and liquidated damages, the restaurant owners will pay $7,100 in civil penalties. They must also post notices of the settlement.
