The president and vice president of a transportation company at O’Hare International Airport are facing federal criminal charges for allegedly stiffing their employees.

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) claims that Total Enterprises, based in Texas, violated the prevailing wage and benefits provisions of its contract to shuttle Transportation Security Administration (TSA) personnel from remote parking lots to the airport.

DOL investigators say the company owes back wages and benefits totaling at least $1.5 million to more than 120 workers. And with the TSA involved, it’s not just a civil matter; it’s a violation of the federal Service Contract Act.

If the execs are found guilty, Total could lose more than just the back wages it should have paid. It could be barred from working on government contracts for up to three years.
