In addition to denying overtime to misclassified employees for hours over 40 in a week, the company did not provide paid leave as required, DOL found. Under the FLSA, employees claimed as exempt must receive a fixed salary that may not be reduced based on the quality or quantity of the work performed.

In addition to paying back wages, the company agreed to properly classify its temporary employees as non-exempt.
