Ocean City Restaurants Sued for Unpaid Wages

The popular restaurant, Harpoon Hanna's, located just across the Delaware line next to Ocean City, Maryland, has been sued for failure to pay proper wages to a tipped employee. Within the last year, a number of popular Ocean City restaurants have been sued by employees for failure to pay proper wages, including the failure to pay time-and-a-half for overtime.

When FMLA Expires, Must an Employer Grant Additional Leave Under the ADA?

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit issued a resounding "no" upholding a decision in favor of an employer. The employer denied an employee's request for an additional 2-3 months off when his FMLA expired. The Seventh Circuit's decision went so far as to stress that the "ADA is an antidiscrimination statute, not a medical-leave entitlement." (Emphasis added.)
