Investigators from the department's Wage and Hour Division alleged that the hospital failed to pay employees in all departments for time worked before and after scheduled hours and for lunch breaks of less than 30 minutes. The recalculation of hours worked resulted in $1,311,295 in back overtime wages for 3,427 employees, according to the department.

The investigators also alleged that the hospital wrongfully terminated one employee, who was covered by the Family and Medical Leave Act. The department said the worker was entitled to $24,921 in back wages.

The Wage and Hour Division recovered nearly $200 million in back wages in fiscal year (FY) 2004 for more than 288,000 workers.
