Dallas BBQ Workers Sue Over Alleged Locker-Room Surveillance

The Post says workers at the Downtown Brooklyn branch of Dallas BBQ have filed a lawsuit against the chain restaurant’s owners, alleging that managers watched employees change in and out of work uniforms on closed-circuit cameras installed in locker rooms. Plaintiffs in the class-action papers say they were told the surveillance was part of a “loss prevention” scheme — in other words, the higher-ups wanted to make sure no one was absconding with brisket. Less pervy claims include employee tip-skimming and uncompensated overtime, something Dallas BBQ has been sued for in the past. [NYP, Related]
