Georgia Concrete Company to Pay $179,314 in Back Wages After U.S. Department of Labor Investigation Finds Overtime Violations
MARIETTA, GA – A residential concrete design and installation company will pay $179,314 in back wages to 37 employees after a U.S. Department of Labor investigation found Marietta-based TCB Grading Inc. violated the overtime and recordkeeping provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
Wage and Hour Division investigators found that TCB Grading Inc. paid employees straight-time, instead of the required time-and-one-half, for hours they worked beyond 40 in a workweek. The employer also failed to maintain accurate time and payroll records.
“The resolution of this case puts these wages into the hands of those who earned them, and demonstrates how our enforcement levels the playing field for law-abiding employers,” said Wage and Hour Division District Director Eric Williams. “We encourage employers to contact the Wage and Hour Division by phone, online, or to attend any of our outreach events for assistance and to learn more about their responsibilities.”
For more information about the FLSA and other laws enforced by the Wage and Hour Division, contact the Division’s toll-free helpline at 866-4US-WAGE (487-9243). Information is also available at http://www.dol.gov/whd/.
