Employees of the Jackson, Mississippi-based company worked as quality inspectors overseeing Hurricane Katrina-related debris cleanup along the Mississippi Gulf Coast .

The department's investigators said that from September to December 2005, the company calculated overtime wages by adding two dollars per hour to employees' regular hourly rate, instead of paying the required time and one-half.

The investigation was conducted under Wage and Hour's Katrina-related initiative to ensure that workers involved in hurricane-related activities are properly compensated. In addition, Wage and Hour has dispatched additional investigators to the Gulf Coast region and created a Gulf Coast Task Force to provide increased enforcement support and boost compliance outreach activities.
