DAYTON, OH (FOX19) -
U.S. Department of Labor has filed a complaint in U.S. district court in Dayton
seeking to recover back wages and damages for workers at three El Rancho Grande
restaurants in Ohio.
An investigation determined that the restaurants, as well as co-owners Francisco Magana
and Juan Hernandez, violated the Fair Labor Standards Act by failing to pay
workers proper minimum wage and overtime compensation.
have determined that approximately $285,000 in back wages is owed to 171
workers at Gran Fiesta Inc. in Cincinnati, El Rancho Inc. in Sharonville and
WRGRM LCC in Dayton.
All three restaurants do business as El Rancho Grande.
workers such as restaurant servers and kitchen staff are far too often taken
advantage of because they are reluctant to question employers about their pay
and benefits," said George Victory, district director of the division in
Columbus. "We are committed to ensuring that all
workers receive their rightful wages and benefits."
found that some kitchen workers were paid a flat rate per week, which amounted
to less than the minimum wage per hour, and were not compensated at time and
one-half their regular rates for overtime hours worked beyond 40 per week.
servers' pay fell below the minimum wage due to deductions made for uniforms
and because they were not paid for work performed both before and after their
Workers with limited English skills often performed more
uncompensated pre- and post-shift work than other servers. The restaurants also
failed to maintain accurate time and payroll records as required.
complaint seeks the restoration of all back wages plus an equal amount in
liquidated damages, as well as future compliance with the FLSA's minimum wage,
overtime, record-keeping and child labor provisions.
When similar wage
violations and the falsification of payroll records were disclosed at the same restaurants by a 2002 Wage and Hour Division investigation, the employer agreed
to pay more than $100,000 in back wages.
FLSA requires that covered employees be paid at least the federal minimum wage
of $7.25 for all hours worked, plus time and one-half their regular rates,
including commissions, bonuses and incentive pay, for hours worked beyond 40
