The lawsuit also seeks to collect an additional $2.7 million in damages as well as $722,000 in civil penalties previously assessed but never paid, according to the attorney general. Since 2009, Project Service has held a contract with the state Department of Transportation to provide food service to the 23 state-owned service plazas along I-95, Route 15, and I-395. Project Service in turn contracts with a number of different food service operators. Project Service’s agreement with the state requires them to comply with standard wage laws.
