A British company recently agreed to pay about $400,000 in back overtime pay for violating Texas labor laws. Nearly 500 contracted construction and technical workers and engineers working for the American branch of Scotland-based RBG Limited accused the company of improperly compensating them under both federal and state laws.
A report issued by the U.S. Department of Labor substantiated the workers’ claims. DOL investigators found the company, which serves the petroleum industry, guilty of similar transgressions at its location in Cohocton, N.Y.
Final note: Companies operating in multiple jurisdictions should make sure they understand all pertinent labor and employment laws. They can’t simply follow federal laws and assume that they’re in compliance.
