Underpayment of Wages in Crestview, FL

After an investigation by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD), Lockheed Martin paid $327,271 in back wages and liquidated damages to 20 employees for violating provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the McNamara-O’Hara Service Contract Act (SCA) at a Crestview, Florida, work site. WHD determined the company erroneously classified some employees as exempt from FLSA overtime requirements and paid them flat weekly salaries without regard to the number of hours they actually worked. It was also found that Lockheed violated the recordkeeping provision of the FLSA when it failed to keep accurate records of the number of hours worked by some employees, and violated the requirements of the SCA when the amounts paid to those salaried workers fell below the hourly rates and fringe benefits required by law.
