GA concrete company to pay $100K+ in back wages due to U.S. Labor violations

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – A Georgia concrete company is paying $179,314 in back wages to 27 employees after the U.S. Department of Labor finds overtime violations.

The Marietta based company, TCB Grading Inc. violated the overtime and recordkeeping provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act.

Wage and Hour Division investigators found that TCB Grading Inc. paid employees straight-time, instead of the required time-and-one-half, for hours they worked beyond 40 in a workweek. The employer also failed to maintain accurate time and payroll records.

"The resolution of this case puts these wages into the hands of those who earned them, and demonstrates how our enforcement levels the playing field for law-abiding employers," said Wage and Hour Division District Director Eric Williams. "We encourage employers to contact the Wage and Hour Division by phone, online, or to attend any of our outreach events for assistance and to learn more about their responsibilities."
