Restaurateurs settle over health surcharge
San Francisco Chronicle

At least 19 San Francisco restaurant owners accused of misleading customers by charging diners more in employee health-care surcharges than they actually put aside for workers have settled cases with the city. The resolutions come as San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera closes in on capping a four-month consumer-fraud investigation in which restaurants and other businesses allegedly gamed San Francisco’s universal health-care law from 2009 to 2011.
