In total, the Department of Labor was able to recover $129,612 for over 154 workers at 16 different locations. The Altoona location on 6011 Kentucky Ave. received $3,896.
This back pay came following a federal investigation of overtime and record-keeping violations. According to the Department of Labor, Ziegler Tire called mechanics and tire technicians in the evening after normal working hours to complete auto service repairs. The employer reportedly failed to add these “call-out” hours to the total employee hours and failed to include commissions and call-out bonuses in regular rates of pay when determining overtime rates.
“Employers who fail to pay their workers all their hard-earned wages shortchange these people and their families and gain an unfair advantage over competitors who abide by the law,” said Wage and Hour District Director John DuMont in Pittsburgh. “The Wage and Hour Division provides many tools and resources to help employers avoid violations and fully comply with the law.”
