JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Federal officials have recovered more than $800,000 in back wages for employees of a Florida timeshare company.
The U.S. Department of Labor says Orlando-based Central Florida Investments didn't pay workers the minimum wage for all the hours they worked when they scheduled tours of timeshare properties. The labor department also said that premium pay for the workers also didn't include commissions, that overtime work was incorrectly calculated and that the company failed to keep accurate timecard records.
The Fair Labor Standards Act requires that covered employees be paid at least the federal minimum wage of $7.25 for all hours worked and that employers must keep accurate payroll records.
