Meshna, et al. v. Scrivanos, et al. (Lawyers Weekly No. 10-057-15)

NOTICE:  All slip opinions and orders are subject to formal revision and are superseded by the advance sheets and bound volumes of the Official Reports.  If you find a typographical error or other formal error, please notify the Reporter of Decisions, Supreme Judicial Court, John Adams Courthouse, 1 Pemberton Square, Suite 2500, Boston, MA, 02108-1750; (617) 557-1030; SJCReporter@sjc.state.ma.us   SJC-11618   RON MESHNA & others[1]  vs.  CONSTANTINE SCRIVANOS & another.[2] Suffolk.     December 1, 2014. – April 10, 2015. Present:  Gants, C.J., Spina, Cordy, Botsford, Duffly, Lenk, & Hines, JJ. Tips.  Employment.  Notice.   Civil action commenced in the Superior Court Department on May 18, 2011.   The case was heard by Thomas P. Billings, J., on a motion for summary judgment, and questions of law were reported by him to the Appeals Court.   The Supreme Judicial Court granted an application for direct appellate review.     Shannon Liss-Riordan for the plaintiffs. Diane M. Saunders (Andrew E. Silvia with her) for the defendants. The following submitted briefs for amici curiae: Harris Freeman & Audrey R.

Lieberman for Seyfarth Shaw LLP.   DUFFLY, J.  The plaintiffs are current and former employees at Dunkin’ Donuts stores who brought suit in the Superior Court against Constantine Scrivanos, a Dunkin’ Donuts franchisee of stores that employed the plaintiffs, and NGP Management, LLC (NGP), which performs management functions for those stores.  Among other claims, the plaintiffs maintained that the defendants had implemented a no-tipping policy at certain of their Dunkin’ Donuts stores,[3] and that the implementation of that policy, as well as the method of enforcing it, violated G. L. c. 149, § 152A (Tips Act).[4]  The Tips Act provides that no employer “shall . . . accept . . . any . . . deduction from a tip” given to any wait staff, service, or bartender employee, or “retain . . . any tip” given to the employer directly.  G. L. c. 149, § 152A (b). Concluding that the no-tipping policy was not a violation of the Tips Act, a Superior Court judge allowed the defendants’ motion for summary judgment on that claim.  The judge denied the motion on the claims alleging that the defendants’ policy of placing money left as tips in the cash register, and a later policy of placing money left as tips in “abandoned change” cups, violated the Tips Act, because he determined that these claims raised triable issues of fact.  At the plaintiffs’ request, the judge then reported two questions to the Appeals Court, pursuant to Mass. R. Civ. P. 64 (a), as amended, […]
