Florida Restaurant Pays $38K in Back Wages

A restaurant in Florida was required to pay a total of $38,755 to six workers after a U.S. Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division investigation.

El Guerrero Mexican Grill Inc., in Pinellas Park, Florida, reportedly made several minimum wage and overtime violations, including not paying two servers for their overtime worked, the Department of Labor said in a press release.

The restaurant also paid two servers less than the minimum wage and made illegal deductions from their tips, which are both Fair Labor Standards Act violations, the release said.

Those two violations caused El Guerrero to lose its tip credit, which added to their minimum wage violations, according to the Department of Labor.
