LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A lawsuit claims Domino's Pizza didn't pay workers enough dough.

The company is accused of underpaying workers, failing to pay overtime and not reimbursing delivery staff for their gas and wear-and-tear on their bikes.
The suit claims the pizzamaker underpaid staff $565,000 at 10 stores in New York state.

It names three franchisees and the parent company.

"It's time for Domino's to step up to the plate, to stop hiding behind the franchise business model, and to accept responsibility for the widespread harm they have inflicted on working New Yorkers, and the widespread fraud they have perpetrated and caused," said New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

The company said the suit, "disregards the nature of franchising and demeans the role of small business owners," but didn't deny its franchisees were underpaying workers.
