DNAInfo’s reports that Harlem fave Dinosaur Bar-B-Que shortchanged its employees by “unlawfully” pocketing fees meant for staff during catered events at the popular chain restaurant, a new lawsuit claims.
Two employees at the restaurant’s outpost at 700 W. 125th St., Nicole Asencio and Michael Asencio, claim the chain has failed to give staff a cut of the service fee charged for catered events since 2011, according to a class-action lawsuit filed Thursday in Manhattan Supreme Court.
The pair — who also filed the suit on behalf of more than 40 unnamed employees, including servers and bartenders — said the eatery charged patrons who had events catered on-site an 18 percent service fee, the suit says.
