HSPRD along with the Community Activism Law Alliance (CALA) filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of former Dunkin’ Donuts workers against a Dunkin’ Donuts franchisee yesterday. The lawsuit alleges that the owner of 16 Dunkin’ Donuts franchises made unauthorized deductions from workers’ paychecks for cash register shortages, manipulated time cards, and failed to pay the minimum wage and overtime. Christina Padilla is one of two former Dunkin’ Donuts workers named as plaintiffs in the suit and is represented by HSPRD attorney Christopher Wilmes. The lawsuit was announced yesterday at a press conference outside of the Dunkin’ Donuts store where Ms. Padilla worked.
