Felipe Ramales, 26, claims in a federal lawsuit that he worked for Timberlake's Southern Comfort restaurant for about a year before he left in June.

The suit alleges Ramales and other workers didn't get their proper share of a gratuity charge that the Upper East Side restaurant automatically collected from parties with six or more diners.

Ramales also claims he wasn't paid overtime.

A manager at the restaurant, Chris Russell, told the Associated Press the lawsuit was "baseless."

Russell claims staff members received every dime of their tips, and busboys were paid well over the legal minimum wage.
