The company violated the overtime provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act, according to the Labor Department. In addition to the overtime wages, civil penalties totaled $26,000.
"This company knowingly used illegal employment tactics to avoid paying workers overtime," said Cynthia Watson, regional administrator for the Wage and Hour Division in the Southwest.
