Department of Labor (“DOL”).  DOL told the employer it was in violation of the overtime provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”), the federal minimum wage and overtime law, and owed in excess of $500,000 in back wages.  The company’s local counsel called in Brian Farrington of Cowles and Thompson.  Brian got the case settled for $45.00.
