The Bureau of Labor and Industries announces a settlement in civil rights charges against Typhoon Restaurant and former employees named in the complaint can now submit claims.

 

The restaurant was charged with discrimination against foreign workers who were paid much less and required to work longer hours than U.S. hired employees.

 

Oregon Labor and Industries Commissioner Brad Avakian launched the initial investigation against Bo and Steve Klein and Typhoon Restaurants last year.

 

BOLI helped shield complaining employees while the investigation was ongoing, and now a $100,000 claim fund is set up to pay those former employees, because Avakian says Klein will not be able to satisfy all the debts and he wants t make sure the employees are compensated. .

 

Steve Klein died of a heart attack last August and Typhoon shuttered its restaurants in February.
