National Amusements, Inc. Key Developments
Sumner Redstone Announces Class Action Lawsuit in Boston
Feb 24 17
A chain of movie theaters owned by Sumner Redstone's family has been hit with a proposed class action in Boston, accusing the company of failing to pay its waiters and bartenders the tips and other wages they are owed. The lawsuit, filed last week in Suffolk County Superior Court, targets Showcase Cinemas theaters that serve meals and alcoholic beverages during movie screenings, including those in Chestnut Hill, Dedham, Foxboro and Randolph. The theaters are operated by Norwood-based National Amusements, which is owned by the Redstone family. Showcase charges customers who order food and beverages an automatic 'service fee,' according to the lawsuit. At the Showcase Cinema de Lux at Dedham's Legacy Place, for instance, the service charge is 20%, it said. But the company allegedly does not inform customers that the fee is not a tip for waiters and bartenders. It keeps part of the proceeds from the fees for itself, which is against Massachusetts law, the lawsuit said. The chain over-reports the total amount of tips received by its waiters, causing them to pay taxes on wages they never actually received, according to the lawsuit. Additionally, Showcase does not pay employees one-and-a-half times their typical hourly wage on Sundays and certain holidays, a violation of the state's so-called Blue Laws, the lawsuit said. The lawsuit names National Amusements, Chief Financial Officer Michael Kszystyniak and President Shari Redstone as defendants. It was brought on behalf of Showcase employee Tremayne Smith-Berry by the Boston law firm Regan Lane LLP.
