TI Harris

Rap mogul Clifford “T.I.” Harris, Jr. was sued by former employees who claim he owes them back wages. The 12 employees named Harris and his business partner, Charles Hughes, co-owner of Scales 925 Restaurant in midtown Atlanta.

The former employees accuse Harris and Hughes of violating the Fair Labor Standards Act by refusing to pay them wages earned for time worked.

They employees all quit en masse, saying Harris and Hughes refused to pay them their final paychecks and “threatened to call the police” when they requested their pay.

According to the AJC.com, the lawsuit was filed Tuesday in Atlanta by employees Chrysten Wright, Monique Simms, Kurel Scott, Ongeli McMillan, Whitley Middleton, Sammy Davis, Jenair Perry, Millan Rodrigo, Shomari Davis, Keandra Daniels, DeMarquis Denson, and Cashara Tate.

The documents name Harris as a defendant but the accusations are leveled against Hughes.

It should be noted that Harris is co-owner of the establishment in name only. He was not involved in the day-to-day operation of the restaurant.

According to the documents obtained by the AJC, Hughes created separate bank accounts for Hughes LLC, where he deposited restaurant receipts, causing payroll checks to bounce.

Additionally, the former employees accused Hughes of not paying them overtime because the billing software he used to track their hours automatically deleted anything that exceeded 40 hours a week.

When they complained to Hughes, they say their complaints were often ignored.

The suit alleges:

“During Plaintiffs’ employment with Scales, they would routinely work more than 40 hours per week. Although Plaintiffs would routinely work more than 40 hours per week, they were not paid overtime. Plaintiffs complained to Scales about not being paid overtime; however, Scales would simply ignore their complaints.”

They also complained that their paychecks were unfairly docked to pay others.

“Scales would also take money out of Plaintiffs’ paycheck claiming the money was used to pay the busboys. However, the busboys told Plaintiffs they didn’t receive any money in their checks from Plaintiffs’ wages…Scales would also require Plaintiffs to pay $4.00 out of their paycheck for broken glasses even if no glasses were broken.”

    let my paycheck bounce…you might find me waiting on you in a dimly lit parking lot, forcefully demanding my pay in the form of the car you’re driving and the contents of your wallet.

    Today is National Fried Chicken Day. Why isn’t there a post about that? Unless Clifford is buying folks fried chicken in Buckhead…

  • Fendi

    Not when your boss has a rap sheet that extends from the East Coast to the West Coast. He had more pistols than the US military.

  • NegroDamus

    you’d be surpise of what im able to accomplish when my money been made funny on purpose…somebody finna see a side of me i put up 10 years ago lol

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    We used to have a spot here like that called Yancey’s. Or Yancy’s when they tried to get jiggy with it and open up, in another location, and change the spelling of the name. They actually tried this twice. Really nice spot too. Had jazz and live music. A homegirl of mine was bartending at the time near their final incarnation. Paycheck bounced.

  • Fendi

    Bring it out! Bring it out!!! Lol. I feel you.

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    He was not involved in the day-to-day operation of the restaurant.
    ^^^^^^^
    They why did he threaten to call the police on these folks then?

  • Teresa Uriel

    I don’t know why they sueing him for, he don’t even own the resturant, he just lends his name to it

    Exactly. Someone was mad they could not be on food stamps and mad they can’t afford shrimp and steak. This was super dumb to me.

  • Fendi

    I can understand not being able to purchase alcohol with an EBT card because alcohol isn’t a necessity, but a person can’t buy a steak or seafood with one?!. Smh. Next, they’ll start drug testing recipients. Other states are trying to drug test people who receive public social services.

    Bill DeBlassio is still every bit a white man, with his Black ass, bisexual wife. Folks better stop falling for the okey doke thinking that devil isn’t racist because his wife is Black. Those are some of the worst offenders.

    We know they implemented the change in the rules to adversely impact Black people, although whites are the primary people receiving “welfare.”

  • nucynu25

    Down here you can’t ..I buy a card every month & when I purchase alcohol I always have a remaining balance to pay .

  • HIS4EVA

    yea i didnt think so either

  • nucynu25

    Okay ..

  • HIS4EVA

    EXACT FENDI. they tryna play us but u hurting your own. But we want to stop childhood obesity! nobody wants all that beef w/ mad cow disease.

  • Milani

    Yeah, I live in NY so I been keeping up with it from time to time. I don’t have an EBT card, but I know people who use it, and how they spend it should be their business. I mean, I understand not being able to buy alcohol, but someone should be able to buy steak or seafood if they choose. Food is food, smh…

  • Orchidjones-PETTY INSTIGATOR

    I just find it nuts.. here this Bradly traitor gets all kinds a goodies and a free surgery, and they banning food groups from food stamp programs. This has conspiracy written all over it! Liquor, well I never knew it to allow that, but be for real? You cant get a steak or fish… They’ll be banning all protein soon. all you’ll be able to get is ramen noodle cups.

  • Music

    Pay these people!!!

  • HIS4EVA

  • Soda

    While running ads telling people to eat healthier.

  • Fendi

    They’ll ban the purchase of sodas on EBT cards next. They complain about high fructose corn syrup, but the government hasn’t ban the use of HFCS in the US, nor have they regulated the use of GMOs or artificial colors and flavors in these processed foods they’re stuffing down children’s throats.

    One of the reasons these cattle are sick is because of the GMO corn they’re being fed.

    Meanwhile, in Mexico, their sodas are still made with pure cane sugar like sodas were in the 80’s. They’re more costly, but you drink a couple sips and you’re satisfied.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    I have heard so many bad things about this restaurant but I just stayed outta it, not my business! I only been there a few times and noticed relatives all over the damn place, the original chef left after a few weeks and I could go on and on! The price of fame and money is NOT always a good thing in my opinion if you don’t have the right team around you or people looking out for your best interest! Smh!

  • HIS4EVA

    There is alot that be could made safer but ther are not willing to let go off the money for their luxuries.

  • Orchidjones-PETTY INSTIGATOR

    …and then run to the corner to get the McDonalds dollar menu meal because they cannot afford to eat…heck out of here!

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    This too. But it was just a Rose here recently going off bout her kids missing paychecks. And I have read the living daylights out of one of the largest law firms in this state over wrongful termination of my own kid and wages. I hope a parent in this group has some HR acumen. And threatens to call law on THEM. ie… a lawsuit.

  • bran

    I hate to say this but this happened to me the both times I’ve worked for Black owned businesses. Checks bouncing and what not. Ughhh so annoying. If you’ve ever been in this situation the bank, your car note, rent, etc don’t care if you worked any of those hours and the checks bounced. The overdraft fees alone would eat you alive. After a few pay periods of getting hit with the overdraft fees from depositing it into my account, I use to have to run to their bank and get my murnies out before my co-workers could beat me there. It was a legit race to see who could withdraw their murnies first. Why can’t I expect my check to clear after working hard and attempting to earn my money the right way? If this is true, this is really sad. If they were smart, they would have a budget of how much it would take for a year to pay employees, put that money into a payroll account and leave it alone. Folks work too hard to not be paid.

  • Trey

    Never been to that scales spot…didnt somebody get shot out there?

  • PettyEyezPrime

    I thought alcohol was already no go. Here’s the logic though, even if they buy steak and seafood, that’s it (all funds) until the next month. What different does it make if you buy? It’s not a reloadable prepaid card where the state cares if you ran out on the 14th. But I guess.

  • Fendi

    Naturally. It isn’t about the preservation of the people. It is about the circulation of fiat money.

    Lol @ Roots. I’m still mad at the Black folks who had the audacity to act like it was a privilege to watch Roots 2016. Wake me when there’s a “Passion of the Christ” with Jesus whose hair is like wool and skin is like bronze. I also look forward to a remake of “Cleopatra” starring a woman who looks nothing like Elizabeth Taylor.

  • Tammie Reed

    Regardless, its still a reflection on him and his brand. Thats all I’m saying. Diddy didn’t really own Justin’s in Buckhead but when things got bad, they blamed him. Don’t lend your name to a business when folks already looking at you sideways. LOL!

    You should pose that question to the folks who worked at BET in the 90’s. I couldn’t understand how Bob Johnson was a billionaire and his company was bouncing payroll checks. I would’ve gotten crunk up in the officery in Century City. Jacque Reid and her infinite collection of chokers would’ve been discussing me on the 10pm news.

  • Fendi

    I’m not ok with drug testing them. Drug test these legislators, judges and lawyers who are f*cking up the justice system. It would explain why so many ridiculous laws are being passed and effectuated. Drug test law enforcement, too. They are some of the worst offenders as it pertains to drug and alcohol abuse. And they’re quick to abuse their wives and gfs.

  • Tammie Reed

    I worked for a well known black publication here(not hard to figure out) when I first moved here in ’05. Let’s just say, when we got paid, we would literally storm out the office, leap in our cars and sprint into the bank that same day and within an hour because it was just that possibility that your check was going to bounce!

    The owner would say, “welp, first come first serve” and laugh it off! Not funny! He was always in the damn red. I didnt’ stay but for a few weeks and quit. My nerves was too bad, I would have torn that place up! LOL!

    Not ghetto, just fabulous. When you work hard and earn your keep, you expect to receive what you rightfully earned. Folks need to learn that it costs to be the boss. If they can’t pay that cost, they need to get lost. Don’t bring people into a place of employment under false pretenses when you know you can’t afford to or don’t want to fairly compensate them for their labor.

    Everybody wants to talk about lawyers until they need one. And for the record, lawyers/judges may not get drug tested but the state will yank your license with the quickness for substance abuse.

    The way I see it, if you are unemployed and you can manage to get money for drugs, you can get money for your necessities. Drugs, alcohol, and cigarettes are habits, the government and taxpayers should not be subsidizing your existence so you can spend money on habits.

  • Fendi

    What you fail to realize is that there are millions of Americans who are underemployed. They have jobs but not sufficient hours or income to be able to meet their monthly or weekly demands.

    The presumption that people are on drugs because they are receiving public assistance is asinine. One thing I’ve learned is to refrain from forming opinions on certain topics unless I’m well aware of what I’m forming opinions about.

    God sure has a way of humbling people when they think they’re “above” others.

  • Fendi

    I feel you. I have a business, but it’s still pretty new so revenue isn’t where I’d like it to be.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    At what point did I imply that people were receiving public assistance BECAUSE they are on drugs? Also, note that I did not just single drugs out.

    My point is that if you can BUY drugs then clearly you have disposable income. If you have disposable income, why do you need assistance? If you have someone that will buy you drugs, why will they not help you with necessities. I don’t care if you are employed, underemployed, or unemployed, this is basic financial literacy. You don’t buy what you want and beg for what you need.

  • Fendi

    Do you realize that some people are buying illegal/street drugs because they’re cheaper than legal Rxs? There are people who are severely physically disabled and have medical needs that cannot or are not being adequately met. That doesn’t equate to them having the “disposable income” to buy street drugs. That’s a perspective that stems from having a privileged mentality. As blessed and as fortunate as I’ve been and still am, I’m grateful to know better.

    Not in New York. You can’t be trusted to monitor yourself nor do you deserve fine, fresh foods while on EBT. There.

    1. Oxy is a prescription drug.
    2. You inferred that people are on public assistance because they’re unemployed. You stated the word “unemployed,” which is funny, considering the EDD deals with the unemployed. Unemployment and public assistance aren’t interrelated.
    3. It implies a level of privilege to assume that a person has “disposable income” because they buy drugs. Drugs are a coping mechanism for millions of people, whether they’re taking drugs to ease physical or emotional pain. I don’t judge.
    4. Who told you Medicare covers the cost of all people’s prescriptions? And what do senior citizens have to do with public assistance?

    The only thing I will agree to is that we disagree. Good evening.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    ~sarcasm~ Yes, and other cheap, unhealthy fillers. Why should they get niceties at all , if any, while on the dole. It’s not like they need pricey fresh fruits and vegetables, and better cuts of meat periodically, if at all. ? I guess you get what you get until you can get your own.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Do the same for all. Don’t discriminate. Make every recipient of government funding test, Congress included.

    It doesn’t matter that T.I. is not involved in the day to day operations. He needs to keep track of his businesses. Whether he agrees with that or not he will be equally liable. Folks got bills to pay.

    You inferred. If anything I would have implied (since that is the way the English language works), and I didn’t because my comment was not in reference to employment. It was in reference to public assistance. The root word of assistance is assist, as in you are unable to support yourself. Irrespective of their reasoning for purchasing drugs, the fact remains, the money would be better allocated elsewhere. State/federal funds should NOT be used to purchase drugs. Period. It should not be used for self medication purposes.

    I’m lost as to your point re Oxy. A lot of prescription drugs are sold illegally. That’s common knowledge.

    Never said it paid for ALL prescriptions. But I know that the majority of prescriptions (pain meds, diabetes, etc.) can be purchased for $3 at Walmart. So miss me with the I can’t afford my medicine so I buy oxy by the pill logic.

    You have made several assumptions and erroneous inferences from my comments.

    You have a good evening as well.

    I believe it. MY first job at 15, this happened to me. Yes, I wondered why I was never given a login to clock in. The manager would tell me what time to come in, but I wasn’t “on schedule.” Low and behold, I was basically working for free and couldn’t dispute being shorted so many hours.

    Hopefully they get every penny owed to them. Working for these celeb restaurants aint all that it’s cracked up to be. I love when ish hits the fan, suddenly the celeb is just the name on the product, but not really a hands on owner. Today, you are.

    People are so greedy you have employees working for you and making you rich but this is how you show them your appreciation!!!!by cheating them when they are living below the poverty level trying to feed their family but as long as your family eating forget the working man right!!!it’s really messed up to do people like that you don’t know what those people you cheated were going thru at home just to make it until payday

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    In the 1980s, I worked for a company where the paychecks would bounce. It is a horrible feeling to work 2 weeks and not know if your paycheck would be any good.

  • hottlanta

    They always mess with poor black people.

  • Meme81

    White businesses bounce checks, too. I worked for one. I worked for a Sales Recruiter and they bounced 90% of the salespeople’s checks, which was like hundreds of people. At the time they said it was simply an accounting error, but next month they laid off 20 people.

  • hottlanta

    Those executives at Comcast just got busted for drugs just last week. It was a room full of them. Guess what they gonna go to a drug rehab program for 2 days, get a certificate, keep their jobs and records wiped clean.

  • hottlanta

    Yep he lucky they just sued them. Don’t play with people money. Money is a very emotional tool.

    Okay with drug testing welfare recipients. Really. Read below and have these executives drug tested as well because they are the one’s handling our money and making policies that effect everyone. Welfare recipients don’t have that luxury. You know when the car came to give them drugs it was a write off as a business expense for transportation.

    The Manhattan district attorney’s
    office has charged more than a dozen people, including high-profile executives,
    bankers, and accountants, in relation to a massive New York City cocaine sting.

    Three people were charged with
    operating the cocaine-trafficking ring out of Manhattan’s Lower East Side:
    Kenny Hernandez, 35; Felix Nunez, 27; and Oscar Almonte, 29.

    The operation is accused of selling
    more than $75,000 in cocaine in one year, according to indictment papers
    obtained by Business Insider.

    Eighteen others who faced charges
    were described as “repeat customers,” including Christopher Dodson, a
    client associate at Merrill Lynch; Mark Crumpacker, the chief marketing and
    development officer for Chipotle; Katie Welnhofer, a Fox Business producer who works
    on “Mornings with Maria”; and Austin Dodson, an associate at the
    real-estate firm Cushman & Wakefield.

    Merrill Lynch, Chipotle, Cushman
    & Wakefield, and Fox Business did not immediately respond to requests for
    comment.

    An 88-page charging document details
    nearly 200 texts and calls among those accused of being buyers and sellers from
    June 2015 to June 2016

    Those accused of being buyers were charged with criminal possession of a
    controlled substance.

    Customers regularly paid $200 to $300
    for the delivery service and bought the drugs in bodegas, hotels, and Duane
    Reade convenience stores across Manhattan, according to the indictment papers.

    The Manhattan district attorney’s
    office said:

    “Members of the ring allegedly
    used car services to deliver the drugs to buyers, including to delis,
    restaurants, bars, apartments, hotels, and the buyers’ workplaces. The
    defendants delivered to locations across Manhattan, including the Lower East
    Side, the Upper East Side, Chelsea, the Financial District, and Midtown, as
    well as areas of Brooklyn and Queens. Many of the sales took place in delis or
    Duane Reade and CVS pharmacies. Customers generally paid between $200 and $300
    per transaction.”
