This allegation was made, according to documents filed with the United States District Court for the Western District of Tennessee (Eastern Division), by hourly-paid shift managers, servers, delivery drivers, cooks and customer service employees.
The lawsuits are not the first collective actions filed against NPC International, Inc. for wage violations under the Fair Labor Standards Act. In 2009 a lawsuit claimed that the company deprived delivery drivers of minimum wages by providing insufficient reimbursements for automobile and other job related expenses. News sources reported that the case allegedly was later settled for $8,000,000.
