All Temporaries Midwest, based in Minneapolis, has agreed to settle after investigators from the U.S. Department of Labor alleged the company violated the Fair Labor Standards Act when it failed to pay enough overtime to employees who worked more than 40 hours in a workweek.

The company will pay 92 registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and certified nursing assistants $401,384 in back wages and penalties.

According to federal investigators, the company paid workers time and a half when they exceeded 40 hours in a week, but only up to 47 hours. After that, pay reverted to straight time.

The FLSA requires time and a half for all hours worked over 40 in a week. All Temporaries Midwest agreed to pay the proper amount of overtime moving forward.
