The renowned Rodeo Drive sushi restaurant was ordered to pay $65,785 in fines, by Commissioner Julie A. Su, last week.

After an investigation, it was found that Urasawa workers were underpaid. Commissioner Su determined that employees were not being compensated for working over 10.5 hours a day and they received no rest or meal breaks during their shifts.

The restaurant also failed to provide its employees with mandatory paperwork containing work hours and rate of pay.

Because of these violations, Urasawa will pay three of its workers $38,585 in unpaid wages and is ordered to pay the state a penalty of $27,200

According to an article published in the L.A. Times, Urasawa is the second most expensive restaurant in the world, with a $395-per-plate price tag and an average check amount of $1,111.
