According to a news source, upscale Rodeo Drive sushi restaurant Urasawa has been sued by former employees who claim they were forbidden from taking breaks and were not paid the overtime they worked. Apparently, a California Labor Department investigation has confirmed the complaints targeting chef and owner, Hiroyuki Urasawa, whose menu includes dishes served with caviar and 24-karat gold flakes and can cost a couple in excess of $1,000. Among those seeking back wages is Heriberto Zamora, who was reportedly forced to buy his own $700-set of knives when he was earning just $9 per hour. Zamora claims he was fired nine hours into his shift when he asked to go home with a fever and cough. See The New York Times, July 20, 2013.
