Workers at Anthony Bourdain's Les Halles have filed a class-action lawsuit against the restaurant, and claim that managers took tips and wages from servers and busboys. The news comes from the New York Post, who reported that Les Halles supposedly forced service employees to pool their tips for divvying but then doled out 26 percent of them to floor managers.

The suit also claims that the servers were paid less than the mandatory $5-per-hour wage.

Bourdain is standing behind the managers: "In my experiences at Les Halles, management was, if anything, unusually scrupulous about these things."
