One Fair Wage, a national nonprofit advocating on behalf of restaurant workers, announced on Wednesday, March 9, 2022 a new hotline number, (646) 470-9113 to help service workers facing workers’ rights violations by providing them with legal support.
Why? Tipped service workers and restaurant workers, have reported increased harassment, hostility and racial discrimination in restaurants, instances of wage theft, and health and safety concerns over the lifting of mask and vaccination mandates.
Calling all service workers and restaurant workers!
You deserve a full, livable wage and the right to safe working conditions.
As a service industry worker, tipped worker, or front-of-house or back-of house restaurant worker, did you know you have these rights and protections on the job?
- All restaurant workers are entitled to fair pay, equal opportunities, and safe working conditions.
- We know that topping and the laws surrounding gratuities can be a bit confusing. For example, if tips don’t bring you to the full minimum wage per hour, your employer has to pay you the difference.
- You should be paid time and a half if you work more than 40 hours.
- Call us at 646-470-9113 to learn more about your rights.
