An investigation by the New York State Department of Labor (NYSDOL) found that the operators of the Broadway Bridge Carwash in Upper Manhattan failed to pay workers more than $1.2 million in minimum wages, overtime wages and earned tips between 2003 and 2008. The company owes $858,322 to 36 employees for whom the operators maintained partial payroll records, plus $415,342 to employees who have yet to be identified because they were paid in cash, NYSDOL said. According to the charges, many employees worked 12 hours a day, 6days a week at the carwash without overtime, and some earned as little as $3.75 an hour.

In addition to back wages, the operators must pay damages of $127,366 and interest of $345,000 to employees, plus $214,581 in civil penalties to NYSDOL.
