Raleigh’s Dos Taquitos restaurant must fork over almost $50,000 in back pay to 26 employees the U.S. Department of Labor says were shortchanged.
Investigators from the department’s Wage and Hour Division found that Dos Taquitos violated the Fair Labor Standards Act and child labor laws. They said the restaurant paid workers a weekly salary that sometimes averaged less than the federal minimum wage. The workers didn’t receive overtime pay when they worked more than 40 hours in a week.
Plus, investigators found that a 14-year-old employee worked longer hours than child labor laws permit and it failed to document the ages of workers under 18.
Dos Taquitos agreed to settle the case instead of going to court.
