Restaurant workers shortchanged during COVID awarded $230k
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (KEYC) - Employees of a Minneapolis restaurant group will receive money they were denied after the company laid off workers during the COVID-19 shutdowns without giving them their final paychecks.
A settlement completed Thursday between Bartmann Companies and the Minnesota Attorney General’s Office will ultimately provide $230,000 in back pay, overtime and damages to its employees.
The group operates eight neighborhood restaurants, including Trapeze, Barbette, Tiny Diner and Red Stag Supperclub. In addition to the missed payroll, investigators found that Bartmann had failed to compensate workers for overtime hours.
