A Rogue Enterprise

New allegations are being made in the case of Hovvy’s Club 40/40 “sweatshop tactics:”

Workers are now claiming the club’s general manager, Desiree Gonzalez, threatened one employee she would “f*** up his tax life” for having any involvement in the class-action suit.

According to a letter filed in court by the workers’ lawyer, the 40/40 boss allegedly told another worker she would “lock him up” if he refused to sign a release for the court case. Hundreds of former employees could be eligible to collect on the claims if their case wins in court

Sounds like that particular manager could end up costing Jay-Z quite a bit of dough. Kudos to these former employees for standing up to that gangsta-styled management. Developing…..

    Whoever runs the business needs to replace the management staff, but I guess they can’t while the lawsuit is going on. Now isn’t the wrong time to admit they hired the wrong managers. They need to hurry up and settle and get those people out of there though.

    Has anyone ever worked in a restaurant? Lol man if you are a server,bus-boy, cook or delivery driver, you are a slave..Only the management has leverage or the main cook…Everyone else is expendible so this has little to do with nothing

    This is so stupid to me. I always had mad respect for Jay’s business skills but now he is slipping. You don’t let your image get tarnished for a lawsuit that is probably well less than 100 G’s. His name is all up in the papers over a lawsuit by some damn waiters…….WTF. Whatever they are asking for can’t be much. You would never hear Donald Trump name in the paper getting sued by some damn waiters. If The Donald is being sued, it’s for millions and some real estates is involved. A smart businessman that made 83 million last year would never have his rep trashed over a couple of disgruted waitstaff employees. Give them some money & move on.

    You know the old saying……WHEN THINGS ARE GOING WELL, YOU ARE THE OWNER, WHEN THINGS ARE GOING BAD, YOU ARE JUST AN INVESTER.

  • always knew

    All business owners know to operate within the law, the quickest way to lose your fortune, is to do others wrong. Karma is a mother and she comes back twice as hard..It’s easier to just follow the laws and regulations. Screwing the hired help out of their money, is not good at all, he should’ve known better than that..Come on, Jay, we thought you were much smarter than that, you won’t be able to keep growing, if you continually keep losing money to lawsuits and yor insurance premiums will go sky high, STOP THE MADNESS!!!!

  • always knew

    sorry about the spelling-(typo)–your

  • O-K-A-Y
