U.S. Department of Labor Investigation Results in Florida Window Installer Paying $103,608 in Back Wages to 35 Employees
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – After a U.S. Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division (WHD) investigation, Fort Lauderdale window and door installation contractor ADCO Installers LLC will pay $103,608 in back wages to 35 employees. WHD investigators found the employer violated overtime provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
Investigators determined ADCO Installers LLC paid employees straight-time rates, instead of the required time-and-one-half, for hours they worked over 40 in a work week.
“The Department of Labor is committed to ensuring that employees receive the wages they have earned for all the hours they have worked,” said Wage and Hour Division District Director Tony Pham. “The Wage and Hour Division is also determined to ensure that employers who fail to comply with the law do not gain an unfair competitive advantage over those who do.”
For more information about the FLSA and other laws enforced by WHD, contact the Division’s toll-free helpline at 866-4US-WAGE (487-9243). Information is also available at http://www.dol.gov/whd including a search tool to use if you think you may be owed back wages collected by WHD.
