Central Pa. child care firm would pay workers $263K in deal to end minimum wage, OT dispute with feds
Patriot-News - 6/29/2020
If a federal judge approves the deal, a central Pennsylvania-based child care provider will have to pay $263,000 to current and former employees to resolve a minimum wage and overtime pay dispute with the U.S. Department of Labor.
That proposed consent judgment between the feds and Aa to Zz Child Care and Learning Center Inc. is now on the desk of U.S. Middle District Judge Christopher C. Conner.
The Labor Department sued the firm last year, claiming it was underpaying its employees. Aa to Zz doesn’t admit to the allegations in the tentative consent judgment. The deal also calls for the firm to pay a $37,000 civil penalty.
Scores of current and former employees are receive payments under the deal, ranging from less than $100 to nearly $7,000, according to court filings. The feds claim the minimum wage and overtime pay violations occurred between May 2015 and May 2018.
AA to ZZ has locations in York, Harrisburg, Palmyra, Dover and Hummelstown.
