Suit seeks tens of millions of dollars from operator of Olive Garden, Red Lobster, LongHorn Steakhouse

The restaurant company that serves up unlimited soup, salad and breadsticks, endless shrimp and juicy steaks just got slapped with a labor lawsuit.

Yesterday servers from Olive Garden, Red Lobster, LongHorn Steakhouse and Capital Grille sued Darden Restaurants Inc., the Orlando-based company that operates the restaurants, for allegedly violating the Fair Labor Standards Act by failing to pay minimum wage, failing to pay overtime wages and forcing waiters to work “off-the-clock” before or after their shifts.
