C&H Collins-Hartwell Programs, a Southern California provider of medical day care, must pay 32 employees $344,000 in back pay and damages after the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) found it only paid straight time to workers who worked more than 40 hours in a week.

WHD also found that the company failed to combine hours worked at multiple locations when calculating possible overtime pay.

Since the violations were willful, the employer must pay the affected workers double the back pay due to them.
