Upper Crust Pizza investigated by the Attorney Generals Office

The Upper Crust pizza chain is coming under scrutiny by the Massachusetts attorney general’s office for potential violations of the state’s minimum-wage and other workplace laws, according to an official briefed on the matter.

This inquiry comes days after the Globe reported allegations from former Upper Crust employees that the Boston pizzeria exploited Brazilian immigrant workers as it rapidly expanded over the past decade. Former employees have accused Upper Crust and owner Jordan Tobins of taking back thousands of dollars in overtime payments that were ordered by the Department of Labor and failing to pay minimum wage.
