- IF YOU ARE ONE OF THE OVER 165 EMPLOYEES WHO WORKED
AT THE IHOP RESTAURANT ON UNIVERSITY PARKWAY, IN THE CITY OF SAN BERNARDINO, WITHIN THE PAST FIVE YEARS, THERE IS A CERTIFIED CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT PENDING IN SAN BERNARDINO, CALIFORNIA THAT MAY AFFECT YOUR RIGHTS.
- In August 2004, a class action lawsuit was filed against Defendant, Chudhary Rafiq Ahmad, the owner and operator

the case, and all claims asserted therein, as a class action!

half-hour, uninterrupted, meal breaks during shifts in excess of 5 hours; (2) to take regular paid ten minute, uninterrupted
breaks during shifts of 3.5 hours or more; (3) his refusal to pay all earned overtime; (4) his unlawful deduction of 1/2 hour
of pay from each employee's shift; (5) his failure to reimburse employees for the cost of purchasing and maintaining uniforms; (6)
