Citi charge.  Improper time keeping, pays over $1.8M
Citigroup Technology Inc. has paid nearly 2 million dollars in back wages and penalties impart for failure to maintain required time record, as required by law and misapplying exemption to workers which denied them overtime. The employees involved in this investigation worked in Tampa, Florida and are subject to Federal Fair Labor Standards Act as well as Florida labor laws which state employees receive pay for hours worked in excess of 40 in a workweek at a rate not less than one and one-half their regular rates of pay. There are also requirements for companies to maintain required time records by using an employee time clock, or electronic time clock system to capture and manage employee labor. Wage and Hour Division Administrator Dr. David Weil starts “The Wage and Hour division will continue its vigorous enforcement of the law, including the overtime regulations, to ensure that workers take home every penny they have rightfully earned.” Online payroll software, PEOs and Payroll services have taken note and are now offering integrated Web, Badge, or fingerprint time clocks, as well as Smartphone time clocks that include GPS Geo fencing and remote job and cost center tracking.
