The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division recently announced that MT Supermarket, an Austin grocery store, has paid $186,624 in back wages to 34 workers. The payment comes after an investigation of the Asian grocery store found violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act.

Investigators alleged MT Supermarket failed to pay the minimum wage and overtime to cashiers, stockers, sackers, meat market and office managers. They also uncovered shoddy records of time and payroll.

According to DOL spokeswoman Elizabeth Todd, the funds will be distributed according to the number of hours each employee worked.
