Redstone Arsenal Back Wages

ManTech International and two of its subcontractors— Systems Development Corp. and Bevilacqua Research Corp.—paid $1.2 million in back wages to 236 employees at the Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama. The U.S. Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division (WHD) determined the companies violated provisions of the Service Contract Act (SCA) and the Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards Act (CWHSSA). ManTech and the subcontractors violated the SCA by paying employees rates and benefits less than those required by law. The companies violated the CWHSSA by not paying employees time-and-a-half for hours worked beyond 40 hours in a week. ManTech provided the following statement in regard to the matter: “The U.S. Government initially determined that ManTech was not required to pay SCA wages and benefits under the contract. The Government later changed its mind, and modified ManTech’s contract to add that requirement. In response to that new direction from the Government, ManTech adjusted the compensation owed to the employees.”
