Jenkintown, Pa. pub cooked books in addition to meals

The owner of Drake Tavern in Jenkintown, Pa. will serve up $25,902 in back wages and an equal amount in liquidated damages to 50 employees after investigators from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division discovered that managers consistently altered employee time cards to show they worked less than 40 hours a week, depriving them of overtime pay.

The tavern also worked two 15-year-old employees later than permitted by law.

In addition to the back pay, the owners will pay a $15,120 civil penalty because the overtime and child labor violations were deemed willful.
