Workers at several Domino's Pizza locations in New York will split nearly half a million dollars in a minimum wage lawsuit settlement announced Thursday.

The state attorney general's office says 23 different Domino's Pizza restaurants, including several in the city, had been committing a slew of minimum wage law violations.

"Some of the franchises that we have reached a settlement with simply did not pay overtime. Pizza delivery workers were paid below minimum wage. For tipped workers, for delivery workers, they were not reimbursed for using their personal vehicles to deliver pizza. Employees working in multiple stores during the same week were not able to combine hours, so they lost out on overtime pay," said State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

Each of the 750 workers is expected to receive between $200 and $2,000 in the settlement.

Back in December, the attorney general ordered the reinstatement of 25 workers at a Domino's Pizza in Manhattan after they were fired for going on strike.
