Fed Fines Rick Ross for Labor Law Violations

XXL Reports that Boss Wing Enterprises is accused of paying employees for background checks and security training. The Fed also accused Ross of paying employees for their uniforms and lack of cash registers.

Labor’s Wage and Hours Department announced that $114,427 was collected “in back wages, liquidated damages and civil penalties” from Wingstop locations at state-run restaurants.

The Fed collected $51,674 in liquidation damages and past pay for more than 200 employees. The Fed also collected an assessment of $65,753 in civil fines.

Restaurant industry workers often work hard for low pay, and many rely on every dollar they earn to meet their needs,” said Audrey Hall, district director of the Wage & Hour Division in Jackson, Mississippi.

Hall continued:

The law prohibits Boss Wing Enterprises LLC from transferring operating costs to workers by deducting uniform costs, cash register shortages or training expenses, or by allowing a worker to reduce a worker’s wage below the minimum wage rate.

Rick Ross replied

Rose addressed the situation on Instagram with a 30-second video. Wearing a Balmain sweater near the piano, the rapper said in part:

When you run a business there will be mistakes,” he said.

The 46-year-old continued to say:

But as the biggest boss you don’t make the same mistake twice.

He continued to say that “taking accountability” is important, and that he would use this experience as “a step.”

Rick Ross currently has 30 Wingstop locations.
