Waitress Sues Jay-Z for Failing to Pay Employees the Minimum Wage



Jay-Z is being sued by a woman who used to work as a waitress at his New York nightclub 40/40 for allegedly failing to pay employees the minimum wage.

Jay-Z is in hot water that a waitress filed a lawsuit, accusing him for failing to pay employees the minimum wage.

Celeste Williams, a former waitress at Jay-Z's club 40/40, filed a lawsuit Tuesday May 22nd on behalf of herself and others, including bartenders, table clearers, and waiters, accusing Jay-Z and the company that owns the club, Twenty Ones Inc, of not paying staff the tips left for them by customers.

The suit claims a percentage of tips were kept from staff and accuses the club of "willfully failing and refusing to pay them at the legally required minimum wage" since it opened in 2003.

Williams is seeking unspecified damages and claims around 100 staff were treated in the same manner. 40/40 management, on the other hand, said Williams only worked at 40/40 for four days in December 2005 while the club spokesman, in the meantime, claimed the allegations against the club are false.
