3 R.I. nursing homes pay $200K in back wages, penalties (Employees working at different facilities (Corps) for the same employer – No OT)

Three Rhode Island nursing care facilities have paid 192,622 in back wages and liquidated damages to 89 employees to resolve overtime and minimum wage provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act, the U.S. Department of Labor announced Thursday.

The payments came after an investigation by the department’s labor wage and hour division. The facilities also paid $68,796 in civil penalties.

Investigators determined that the employers failed to total weekly hours for employees who worked at both the Park View and Bannister centers during the same workweeks. The practice resulted in overtime violations when total hours exceeded 40, but the employers failed to pay overtime, instead paying for hours worked at each location separately, at straight time rates.
