Truck Drivers Get Back Wages for Time Spent Delivering to Work Site
Rossi Concrete of Fallbrook, California, has agreed to pay nearly $95,000 to 19 truck drivers following an investigation in which Department of Labor investigators say they found the company failed to pay the truck drivers for drive time when they transported equipment from the company's yard to the worksite or from site to site.

Other employees loaded materials onto trucks but were not paid until they started working at the jobsite, according to investigators.

"Under the Fair Labor Standards Act, a workday usually includes all time that an employee is required to be on the employer's worksite, on duty, or at a prescribed workplace," says Tammy D. McCutchen, administrator of the DOL's Wage and Hour Division.. "Employee's at Rossi Concrete were on duty when they loaded trucks and transported materials and should have been paid for those hours worked."

The company, which engages in decorative concrete work, was also accessed a civil money penalty of $8,075 for repeat violations of the FLSA. In 1999, an investigation found that the firm was paying straight time for all overtime hours worked and paid 52 employees nearly $47,000 in back wages.
