Workers Sue The Front Room

An article in today’s Press Herald reports that a group of six current and former employees are suing The Front Room.

A group of restaurant workers is suing The Front Room, claiming that it violated state and federal wage and hour rules.

The restaurant’s owner, Harding Lee Smith, disputes the claims, calling the lawsuit “frivolous.”

The lawsuit, filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Portland, is likely to be followed closely by the state’s restaurant owners because many of the alleged practices are widespread in the industry.

There’s also been news coverage from The Forecaster, MPBN, WMTW, Munjoy Hill News and the Portland Daily Sun.
