HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The owners of four Ichiriki Japanese Nabe Restaurants on Oahu will have to pay more than $60,000 in overtime to 62 employees, the U.S. Department of Labor said Friday.
According to the Labor Department's investigation, Ichiriki only paid overtime if employees worked more than 80 hours over two weeks. But the law requires employers to pay overtime to employees who worked beyond 40 hours in a single week.
The investigation also found that Ichiriki also paid managers a flat rate per day even though they may have worked more than 40 hours in a week.
Ichiriki also did not keep accurate records of the number of hours employees worked, the Labor Department said.
The four restaurants include locations in Honolulu, Aiea and Kaneohe.
