Qwick Staffing Company Sued by City of San Francisco

San Francisco is suing Qwick, a staffing company in restaurants and hotels, for denying workers of minimum wages and other benefits. If you or anyone you know has relevant experiences with Qwick, call the City Attorney at (415) 355-3268 or email [email protected].

Statement from Anand Singh, President of UNITE HERE Local 2: “Hospitality workers perform incredibly difficult work and provide services that millions of Californians rely on. Qwick’s workers are entitled to the same protections, wages, and benefits as their peers employed at hotels and restaurants. We appreciate the work of the City Attorney’s Office to root out worker misclassification before this business model can take hold in the hospitality industry.”
