Many fast food restaurants require their employees to purchase uniforms and/or clean their uniforms at their own costs. However, employees should be reimbursed for the cost of purchasing and cleaning their uniforms. In a recent lawsuit against McDonald’s, for example, employees alleged that McDonald’s did not pay employees the costs of purchasing their uniforms and cleaning their uniforms.
We are actively investigating a potential class action against fast food restaurants that do not pay their hourly employees for the cost of purchasing and cleaning their uniforms. If you or someone you know works for a fast food restaurant that requires the employees to purchase and clean their uniforms, please contact us to discuss your legal options.
