Under the agreement, which has yet to be finalized by a judge, Dajerabby will pay $55,000 to about 100 current and former Screaming Eagle employees. Of that, $27,500 is for unpaid overtime and minimum wage pay and the remaining $27,500 is for other damages.

The company also agreed to pay not less than the $7.25 per hour minimum wage, pay time and a half after 40 hours of work in a week and follow tip and tip pooling regulations.

The complaint alleged the business, located on East Fourth Street, violated overtime and minimum wage laws between May 2015 and May 2017.
