Rap mogul T.I. has been hit with a lawsuit by his former employees at Scales 925, his downtown Atlanta restaurant.
Twelve ex-staffers filed the lawsuit Tuesday at the U.S. District Court in Atlanta against Tip (real name Clifford Harris, Jr.), his business partner Charles Hughes and the restaurant management group. They alleged that the restaurant refused to hand over their final paychecks and "threatened to call the police" upon requesting the payment, reports The Atlanta-Journal Constitution.
The plaintiffs also claimed they were not properly paid for services rendered, citing the Fair Labor Standards Act. The documents also state that Hughes used Scales' LLC to create bank accounts for payroll and would deposit money from the restaurant into his personal account, which caused payroll checks to bounce.
