Part 3 of Reporter Doug Sovern’s KCBS Cover Story Series – Healthy San Francisco
SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – Dozens of San Francisco restaurants accused of overcharging customers to cover employees’ health care have less than two months left to clear their names or face prosecution.
The City Attorney’s Office has identified 93 restaurants suspected of taking in more than they paid out when they added a Healthy San Francisco surcharge to the bottom of customers’ bills.
So far, one restaurant has been exonerated. Fifty others remain under investigation.
“We are giving everybody the opportunity to come in and make their case or to make a partial repayment, and we will prosecute those last remaining holdouts,” said City Attorney Dennis Herrera.
