Domino's Pizza fired 25 employees due to wage-and-hour dispute

Recently, 25 Domino's Pizza employees were terminated after voicing their concerns about their wages, claiming that they were paid only "tipped wages" but were being forced to do long periods of untipped kitchen duties. Both state and federal law sets a limit on untipped duties like kitchen and cleaning work. The employees were reinstated after the New York State attorney General reached an agreement with Domino's Pizza; however, the agreement did not resolve the wage-and-hour dispute.
