Jay-Z’s Shady Business Practices

Jay-Z Tickets

Mr. Carter could be shelling out the dough if his club 40/40 chain is found liable for some shady treatment of its workers.

Rap mogul Jay-Z could soon be shelling out the Benjamins for forcing workers at his trendy 40/40 club to pick up the tab for deadbeat customers. Manhattan Federal Judge Loretta Preska said current and past servers, bartenders and others who’ve toiled at the downtown sports bar and lounge could be eligible for a payout from a suit certified as class action Tuesday.

Some 20 workers accuse club managers of making them work for tips only, cheating them out of overtime and forcing them to pay for breaks and spills as well as “walkouts.” Hundreds of former employees could be eligible to collect if the workers’ claims are successful at trial, their attorney says.
