Misclassified Employees to Receive Nearly $186,000

Binex Line Corp. has agreed to pay $92,864 in back wages and an equal amount in liquidated damages to 49 misclassified employees. An investigation by the Wage and Hour Division established that the Los Angeles-based freight and logistics employer willfully violated the Fair Labor Standards Act’s overtime and recordkeeping provisions. Binex Line failed to pay workers the required overtime premium for hours worked beyond 40 in a workweek and improperly classified nonexempt employees as exempt from overtime pay. The division’s San Francisco District Office also secured an enhanced compliance agreement with the company.
