The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) has found two California nursing homes failed to pay their employees the federal minimum wage.

WHD concluded that San Bruno-based Christina’s Care Home had not proper minimum wages and overtime to 15 employees. The company will pay the workers $62,215. Because this is not the first time the company has violated the law, it will pay a civil penalty of $4,620.

Damenik’s Home operates three facilities in the San Francisco area. WHD found the firm paid 32 em­­ployees hourly rates as low as $5.77 per hour with no overtime when they worked more than 40 hours in a week. Damenik’s will pay the workers $125,000 to settle the suit.

Note: WHD investigators have been targeting industries that have traditionally paid low wages, including nursing homes and the hospitality industry. Employers in those targeted industries should run internal wage-and-hour checks to ensure they are in compliance.
