Iowa Company to Pay $30K Back Pay to Workers
DES MOINES (AP) - The U.S. Department of Labor says it's recovered nearly $30,000 in back pay owed to 31 employees of Des Moines-based Capital City Boiler & Machine Works.
The dispute was over travel-time pay. The Department of Labor says an investigation discovered that the company paid nonexempt employees their normal rate for travel time. The investigation found that when travel led to overtime, Capital City Boiler violated the Fair Labor Standards Act by failing to pay employees the overtime rate of 1½ times their regular pay.
Officials say Capital City Boiler cooperated throughout the investigation and is now in compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act.
