Orange County’s Laundry Room Clothing had a hard time making payroll during the depths of the Great Recession. Now the men’s fashion manufacturer must make amends big time to the employees it stiffed.
A federal court has ordered the company to pay $887,554 in unpaid wages, overtime compensation, and liquidated damages to the company’s current and former employees.
The default judgment came after a U.S. Department of Labor investigation found that the company failed to pay approximately $380,824 in minimum wages and overtime compensation to 115 employees. The court tacked on an additional $506,730 in liquidated damages to the employees.
The DOL found that the company several times failed to pay workers between February 2009 and March 2010.
