The U.S. Department of Labor says Rick Ross and his family’s Boss Wings Enterprises illegally deducted wages from employees at several Wingstop locations.
According to the department’s Wage and Hour Division, Rick Ross and his family’s company violated the Fair Labor Standards Act.
An investigation discovered minimum wage, overtime and record keeping violations at five Wingstops operated by Boss Wings in Mississippi.
Rick Ross’ family business allegedly made employees pay for their own uniforms, safety training, background checks and cash register shortages.
The violations led to some workers taking home pay less than the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour.
