Feds Order Chapala Mexican Restaurant to Pay $230K in Unpaid Overtime

Posted By on Mon, Dec 8, 2014 at 1:30 PM

A Boise-area restaurant chain has agreed to pay $230,000 in back wages and damages to dozens of workers in the wake of a federal investigation that found overtime violations at its Boise, Garden City, Nampa and McCall restaurants.

Chapala Mexican Restaurant must pay the unpaid overtime to 51 of its employees after investigators from the U.S. Department of Labor found that the owners didn't properly compensate its cooks, tipped employees and other staff.  

The U.S. Fair Labor Standards Act requires that covered employees be paid at least the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour as well as one-and-a-half times their regular rate for every hour worked over 40-hours per week. The law also requires detailed record-keeping of employee wages and hours.
