(DISNEY WORLD/CNN) - Disney will pay back $3.8 million to more than 16,000 Florida workers who were charged for their costumes.
The Department of Labor said Disney violated wage laws by deducting a "uniform or costume" expense from employee's paychecks.
That deduction caused their hourly pay to fall below the federal minimum wage.
The government also said Disney did not compensate employees for the time they spent performing "pre-shift" duties. The resorts also failed to adequately record time and payroll records.
The payouts include people who work at the Disney Vacation Club Management Corporation and Walt Disney Parks and Resorts.
Disney could not be immediately reached for comment.
