San Antonio-area China Sea restaurants got burned when investigators from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) found the company maintained two sets of books, one showing them in compliance and one telling the true story.

Workers at China Sea #1, China Sea #2, and China Sea #3 often worked 60 hours or more each week, but they frequently were not paid for all their time and were never paid overtime.

The restaurants paid kitchen workers a salary that, when divided by the hours the workers spent on the job, frequently amounted to less than minimum wage.

To settle the case, the restaurants’ owners will pay $504,577 in back wages and damages to 82 current and former workers.
