Former employees of NYC restaurant suing for allowing rappers to smoke weed

A lot music artists are known for having a penchant for taking tokes of the marijuana smoke. One upscale New York City eatery is being sued by four former employees because of their relaxed views on weed.

According to legal documents, Philippe Chow‘s Philippe is known as one of the best Chinese restaurants in the city. They’ve served guests including RihannaKanye West, and Jay-Z. Celebrities love the spot for the cuisine and their private basement dining area. The employees suing the restaurant say the owners of the establishment constantly allow rappers to light up whenever they eat in the basement “which exposed them to smoke from a harmful and illegal substance.”

One employee alleged the owners of Philippe fired him after he made a complaint about not being able to breathe while serving high-end patrons in the basement. He also cited the fact he made a grievance about going home to his wife and child smelling of the herbal medicine. The other employees claim they saw a severe reduction of shifts because they joined a separate lawsuit where they claimed they weren’t being tipped out properly and weren’t being paid for working overtime. All four of the plaintiffs are suing for unspecified damages.
