Employees at eight hotels near Los Angeles International Airport filed class action lawsuits in L.A. Superior Court claiming the hotels violated a city law requiring LAX area hotels to pay employees all tips and services fees collected on their behalf.

The lawsuit claims that despite the law, the hotels, the Four Points, Marriot, Renaissance, Embassy Suites, Courtyard, Westin, Hilton and Radisson, have continued to pocket the fees that they are collecting on behalf of their employees.

The L.A. City Council passed the ordinance in November of 2006.
