Darden Restaurant: ‘We’re not going to let you off’
Darden Restaurants has been the target of numerous lawsuits in the past few years, with more than a dozen pending.
It has been accused of overcharging its customers, not providing proper service, and violating the Fair Labor Standards Act.
The company has also been criticized for hiring foreign workers and paying them less than the minimum wage.
Darden said that it is “not going to be a part of this story” and that it has a “commitment to fair treatment.”
“We take these allegations seriously, and we will be vigorously defending ourselves,” the company said in a statement to Fox News.
Dangerman Restaurant, the chain’s most recent lawsuit, was filed in May 2018 by former employees who allege that the restaurant charged them $3,200 a month for working fewer than 35 hours a week and failed to provide proper medical insurance, according to the Associated Press.
DANGERON Restaurant is owned by billionaire Chinese investor Zeng Jianlin.
It is the only restaurant in the Darden chain to not receive an F rating.
The AP previously reported that Zeng is a big investor in the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team.
In January, he gave $100 million to the Los Angels Angels of Anaheim baseball team to help build a new stadium.
Zeng has also given money to various charities and charities that work to improve the lives of children.
Dangs family also owns the Los Padres baseball team, which is based in San Diego.
