(CBS News) – The attorney also lambasted Alpine for not taking the concerns of its members into account, saying the destruction of property is no less significant merely because it’s an accessory item, as opposed to a vehicle. If a customer’s car had been scratched at the club, one would expect the club to pay for the damage, she said.
Club members pay a $65,000 initiation fee and $19,000 in annual dues, according to a job recruiter’s profile of the establishment.
Employment attorney Louis Pechman told the New Jersey Record that the country’s club action was uncalled for and that the waiter should not be held liable.
“This type of a cross-claim is unheard of,” he told the newspaper. “Good human resources policy would dictate that the restaurant has the employee’s back, rather than sticking the knife in his back.”
