Disney will pay $3.8 million in back wages after feds allege wage and hour violations – Orlando Sentinel

The Walt Disney Co. has agreed to provide $3.8 million in back wages to thousands of hotel- and timeshare-resort workers after the U.S. Labor Department investigated violations of minimum wage, overtime and recordkeeping rules.

Disney will pay back wages to 16,339 employees. That averages out to about $233 per worker.

The labor department said employees were routinely not paid for 15 minutes of work before and after shifts. Disney also deducted a uniform expense that caused some workers’ hourly rates to fall below the federal minimum wage. And the resort failed to maintain required records of hours worked by certain employees.

The department would not say what prompted its investigation.
