A recent U.S. Labor Department action shows how aggressively the federal government is going after employers who don't follow the letter and spirit of the Service Contract Act (SCA).

The SCA requires employers that perform services on federal contracts to pay service employees no less than the wages and benefits prevailing in the locality.

The Labor Department sued a St. Louis-based security contractor, Huntleight USA Corp., to recover more than $7.1 million in back wages for its 7,000 employees.
