Yes. There have been numerous FLSA class action lawsuits filed to insure chefs are paid what they are owed. An class action lawsuit is a claim filed by an entire group of chefs against their employer for payment of back overtime wages. Therefore, if multiple employees at the same business have unpaid overtime claims, they may be able to file a collective Wage and Hour action to recover their wages.
Wage and Hour lawsuits can be filed as an individual lawsuit as well. The FLSA provides chefs the right to a file private action against an employer which means the lawsuit is brought by one employee against the employer and other similarly situated workers have no involvement in the case.
