From Brian Lockhart, CT Post:
State labor watchdogs are formally probing Vazzy’s restaurant for potential violations of workplace laws.
“The Connecticut Department of Labor Wage and Workplace Standards Unit, responsible for identifying labor violations, has opened an investigation into Vazzy’s Restaurant in Bridgeport,” the agency said in a statement to Hearst Connecticut Media.
Owner John Vazzano’s attorney, Ed Gavin, said he would cooperate with “any inquiry from the state department of labor.”
Vazzano, a prominent business owner often lauded for his contributions to the community, is accused of allegedly interfering in a sexual assault investigation of two longtime staffers at his dining establishment on Broadbridge Road in Bridgeport. He owns a handful of restaurants in Bridgeport, Stratford, Fairfield and Monroe and for years has operated the eatery at Bridgeport’s golf course.
