Jacksonville-based Brynn Marr Body Shop has agreed to settle overtime complaints filed by 15 employees, following an investigation by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD). The employees will split $19,174.
WHD determined that the body shop improperly classified the workers as exempt from the Fair Labor Standards Act () and failed to keep proper records of hours worked. Because of the misclassification, the shop paid employees straight time even when they worked more than 40 hours in a week.
The body shop owner agreed to correct this ding on his record and align his practices with the FLSA in the future.
