In December, the U.S. Department of Labor received $370,194 for back waged and damages from the owners of Millie’s Café. The DOL found Millie’s Cafe denied workers overtime wages and hid the activity.
Millie’s Cafe owners violated the Fair Labor Standards Act by failing to pay employees overtime. Investigators also found the restaurant attempted to conceal labor violations by issuing company checks and giving cash payments to employees. In addition, the DOL cited the restaurant for failing to keep records of employee hours, including overtime.
