Arby's workers in 5 states to get $57K in back pay
TULSA, Okla. -- Federal officials say more than 700 Arby's workers in five states are to receive nearly $57,000 in back wages.
The U.S. Labor Department announced Tuesday that Tulsa-based United States Beef Corp. has agreed to make the payment to 759 current and former Arby's workers.
The affected restaurants are in Arkansas, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma.
The Labor Department says bonuses paid to managers at 255 Arby's restaurants didn't include overtime when the bonuses were calculated. The agency says the law requires that time-and-a-half pay be included in commissions, bonuses and incentive pay for hours worked beyond 40 hours in a week.
United States Beef didn't immediately return a call for comment. The Labor Department said the company cooperated in the investigation.
The payments average about $75 per affected worker.
