T.I.’s $600,000 lawsuit from ex-restaurant employees gets dropped
by Derêka K. Bennett
The former employees accused the rapper and his business partner of fraud, but court documents show that the suit is now being dropped. More specifically, the employees alleged that T.I. and his partners paid themselves a high salary and was using the money for their own benefit. T.I. He also shared that his former employees weren’t given anything in return for their dismissal. While this situation isn’t exactly unique between employees and employers, many companies try their best to maintain their employees’ happiness. They often consider their employees’ morale and wellbeings, exploring how recognized employees feel for a job well done, and make changes when needed to prevent a high turnover rate. It appears that this may not be the case with T.I. and his former employees, considering what followed with the closure of his restaurant.
Last year, a few of T.I.’s former employees from his now-closed Atlanta restaurant Scales 925 filed an amended federal lawsuit regarding unpaid wages and overtime. Scales 925 opened back in 2015 but came to an end the following year. The amended lawsuit arrived months after the business filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
