Domino's (DPZ) - Get Report failed to deliver the right amount of wages to hundreds of its workers, according to Eric Schneiderman, the Attorney General of New York. He's suing Domino's and three of its franchisees, charging that employees in some New York locations were cheated out of at least $565,000 in wages. The lawsuit asserts that Domino's is a joint employer of the workers at the franchise locations. The AG's office says the multi-year investigation found that Domino's allegedly urged franchises to use payroll reports from the company's computer system, even though the pizza chain new for years that the system under-calculated gross wages. This is the first case in which the Attorney General has alleged that a fast food corporation is liable as a joint employer for labor violations at its franchise stores.
