BALTIMORE (AP) - Two former line cooks are suing prominent chef and restaurateur Bryan Voltaggio, accusing him of wage violations.

According to the federal lawsuit filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Baltimore, the plaintiffs say Voltaggio, business partner Hilda Staples and corporate entities Market Street Management LLC and Volt II LLC violated the Fair Labor Standards Act by not paying the cooks for all the hours and overtime they worked.

Sunday Alexander, a former line cook at Volt Family Meal in Baltimore, and Heather Hensley, a former line cook at Volt in Frederick, say they regularly came to work hours early to prepare ingredients but were instructed not to clock in until their shifts were scheduled to start.

The Frederick News-Post says Voltaggio declined to comment to the newspaper about the lawsuit.
