The owners of Mythos, a Greek restaurant in Queens, have agreed to pay $329,000 in back pay and liquidated damages to 21 employees following a Fair Labor Standards Act investigation by the U.S. Depart­­ment of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division.

According to the government’s complaint, waiters didn’t receive hourly wages, working for tips alone. Busboys and kitchen staff received a flat rate per shift, but no overtime.

In addition to the back pay and liquidated damages, the restaurant owners will pay $7,100 in civil penalties. They must also post notices of the settlement.
