The Oregon Bureau of Labor says it found substantial evidence the owner of the Typhoon! Restaurant is guilty of civil rights violations against its Thai employees.  Steven Kline owns 8 restaurants throughout the state, including the Typhoon! Restaurant and Bo's Asian Bistro in Bend. Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian filed the complaint against the restaurants last fall. “The Bureau of Labor found substantial civil rights violations evidence that Thai employees were paid less, working longer hours were forced to work during breaks and sometimes even had to take work home with them without being paid.” The Bureau also found that Thai workers were threatened with deportation and forced to sign employment agreements that would require workers to pay typhoon thousands of dollars if they quit. Owner Steven Kline denies the claims: “We never threatened deportation, very humanitarian operation.”  Steven Kline will have a chance to defend himself before an Administrative Law Judge.
