School District Settles Allegations of 'Off the Clock' Work

School District 11 in Colorado Springs, Colorado, has paid a total of $652,041 to 442 employees after the Department of Labor alleged the school district violated the minimum wage and overtime provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

The department says that the majority of the alleged wage violations resulted from employees working "off-the-clock" and working in two different job positions without proper overtime compensation. The minimum wage violations occurred when student workers were paid less than the minimum wage, the department says.

The district cooperated with the investigation and took action to come into compliance with federal law and to pay the back wages due the workers, says the department.

The department's Wage and Hour Division recovered more than $166 million in back wages for over 241,000 employees in fiscal year 2005.
