Saipan caterer to pay $70,583 in back wages

Saipan-based R&M Reyes Inc., which does business as M.V. Reyes Catering, has agreed to pay $70,583 in back wages to 43 employees for violations of the minimum wage and overtime provisions under the Fair Labor Standards Act.

Wage and Hour Division investigators found the catering company, which provides food services to public and private schools on Saipan and Tinian, failed to document and pay the employees for all hours worked.

“All hours actually worked must be properly recorded and paid in compliance with the FLSA, including work performed during lunch breaks as well as before and after the employees’ scheduled shifts,” said Terence Trotter, the division’s district director in Hawaii. (USDOL)

    Department of Labor must also probe LSG’s agenda forcing critically ill employees to resign just to avoid paying for their health and life insurance policies. Serious stuff!
