Almost 20,000 join Darden Restaurants employee lawsuit

Almost 20,000 former and current Darden Restaurants workers have opted to join a federal lawsuit that alleges the company underpaid them.

That’s a little less than 10 percent of the 215,000 people who were notified they could become plaintiffs.

A Darden spokesman said in an email that is “well below average for these types of collective actions.” Typically, between 5 and 15 percent of potential plaintiffs in such lawsuits decide to join, said David Lichter, an attorney for the plaintiffs.
