Robert De Niro has come under fire from the US Department Of Labor for having allegedly cheated his restaurant workers out of $328,000 (GBP166,000) in pay. Employment officials claim more than 100 staff at exclusive Japanese eatery Nobu, in New York City, have seen their overtime pay wrongly slashed and the restaurant has been ordered to make up the huge shortfall. De Niro, who is thought to earn around $20 million (GBP10 million) a movie, co-owns the restaurant with Japanese chef NOBUYUKI MATSUHISA.
