San Francisco Business Times

San Francisco is cracking down on restaurants suspected of consumer fraud for pocketing money intended for employee’s health care. City Attorney Dennis Herrera said Friday that “several dozen” of the city’s restaurants are under investigation for allegedly exploiting the now infamous health care surcharge fees that restaurants put on diner’s tab to cover the costs of a controversial San Francisco ordinance passed in 2006 requiring employers to provide health benefits to employees.
