Feds Recover Back Wages for Unpaid OT

Caliber Auto Transfer of Ohio, a vehicle distribution facility based in Fostoria, has paid $77,171 in back wages to 43 employees following an investigation by the U.S. Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division. The Division investigated Caliber under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the federal law that establishes the minimum wage and overtime standards.

The investigation disclosed overtime violations for hourly-paid office employees and switcher crews who moved boxcars in the yard. The workers were paid straight-time for all hours and were not paid time and one-half after 40 hours in a week. The violations occurred from April 2003 through April 2005. Caliber reportedly cooperated fully during the investigation. After the Wage and Hour Division explained the overtime requirements of the FLSA, the company immediately changed its payroll policies to ensure that all workers are paid properly.
