Investigators from the department's Wage and Hour Division Tampa District Office found that Hibachi Buffet violated the overtime, minimum wage and record keeping provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act. Specifically, the employer required servers to work for tips, room and board only and did not pay kitchen employees overtime pay for hours worked beyond 40 in a work week. Additionally, the employer failed to maintain records for all hours worked. Wage and Hour investigators have recently become more aggressive with record keeping fines, due in part to the numerous, easy to use, affordable time and attendance applications on the market today.
