Godfrey restaurant named in lawsuit

Below is the first part of an article by Sanford Sschmidt from It reads...

EDWARDSVILLE — A former waiter at the El Mezcal Restaurant in Godfrey has filed suit against the business, claiming they were paying him no wages for three years and required him to endorse his paycheck over to the managers.

Carlos Olvera named the restaurant, its parent corporation and managers Robert Gonzalez and Susan Gonzalez.

Olvera was employed by the restaurant from June 2006 until November 2013, but he was terminated in November 2013.

The suit claims that Olvera reported the underpayments to the Illinois Department of Labor, which investigated. The defendants assumed that Olvera was the one who made the complaints. He also assisted others in filing complaints.

The suit claims the plaintiff worked from 52-56 hours per week between 2006 and 2009.
