HAMMOND, Ind. — A federal district court in Hammond has entered a consent order and judgment requiring Wheatfield, Ind.-based Kevin Misch Trucking and Excavating Inc. and its owner, Kevin Misch, to repay $50,952 in back wages to 31 employees.
The investigation disclosed that the company violated the FLSA by failing to pay workers time and one-half their regular rates for hours worked exceeding 40 in a week.
The judgment requires the repayment of back wages, including overtime compensation and interest, to employees who worked for the company from Nov. 1, 2003, through May 27, 2007. The judgment also stipulates that the company and its owner must not violate the FLSA in the future.
