FORT MYERS, FL – S & O Groceries Inc. – operating as Bravo Supermarket in Fort Myers – has paid $13,781 in back wages to two employees after a U.S. Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division (WHD) investigation found overtime violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
The Department also assessed the grocery store a civil penalty of $806 for the repeat nature of the violations.
WHD investigators determined S & O Groceries Inc. paid two store clerks flat salaries, regardless of the number of hours they worked. This practice resulted in violations when those employees worked more than 40 hours in a workweek without the employer paying them overtime.
