California Processer Ordered to Pay Back Wages


A federal court has ordered the owners of a LaPuente, CA., processor to reimburse workers for withheld overtime wages amounting to $1 million.


The court action follows an investigation by the U.S. Department of Labor, Wage and Hour Division.  The entity, TL Foods and affiliates, Express Poultry Services, Inc. and K. P. Poultry violated the Fair Labor Standards Act over a five-year period extending from 2015 to 2020.  Department of Labor Regional Solicitor, Marc Pilotin, stated, “For years the employers in this case attempted to hide their wage violations.”  He added, “We will continue to use every legal tool available to protect the rights of vulnerable workers under federal law.”
