Golf can be a leisurely game, but golf course employees expect to be paid on time. The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) expects that, too. It has ordered Charlotte’s Carolina Trail Golf Partners to immediately tee up $758,465 in back wages for 347 workers at seven courses who recently went several weeks without getting paid.
In violation of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (), the company repeatedly missed payroll at The Charlotte Golf Links, Highland Creek Golf Club and The Tradition Golf Club, all of Charlotte. Also working for free were employees of Birkdale Golf Club and Skybrook Golf Club in Huntersville, Divide Golf Club in Matthews and The Links at Waterford in Rock Hill, S.C.
The investigation revealed instances of employees receiving their paychecks five or six weeks late or not at all, resulting in minimum wage and overtime violations. In addition to paying its workers on time, the company must fully comply with the FLSA in the future.
Note: Missing payroll just about guarantees the attention of the DOL. Avoid it at all costs.
