A federal court rejected a proposed class settlement between the Turning Point restaurant chain and a group of its former employees, calling the agreement “coercive” because the proposed terms would deny former employees the ability to opt in and participate in the litigation.

In December 2020, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania granted a conditional class certification for a Fair Labor Standards Act suit brought by former employees of Turning Point’s Pennsylvania restaurants regarding untipped side work.
