WVVA reported that the operator of three underground coal mines in southern West Virginia is ordered to pay USD 1,435,028 in back pay and damages to 214 workers. According to the US Department of Labor, XMV Inc.violated overtime provisions by paying “electricians, surveyors, belt and ventilation maintenance personnel, and an office clerk, flat salaries without regard to the number of hours that they actually worked.” The company also failed to maintain required record keeping for affected employees.

Wage and Hour District Director Mr John DuMont, in Pittsburgh said that “When an employer fails to ensure its employees receive the wages they’re legally owed under the FLSA, we must respond. This judgment illustrates the US Department of Labor’s commitment to ensuring employees receive all the wages they have rightfully earned, and that employers compete on a level playing field.”
