Yes, if multiple restaurant workers at the same business have unpaid overtime claims, they may be able to file a class action lawsuit to recover their unpaid wages. An employee can also join an existing class action lawsuit if it has already been filed for overtime pay.
Each case is different and depending on your situation, filing a class action lawsuit may or may not be in your best interest. If it is determined that a collective action is not your best option, you may want to file an individual claim. Fortunately, the FLSA provides restaurant workers the right to make that decision.
