Pa. Golf Resort Agrees To Pay $55K In Back Pay

YORK, Pa. (AP) – A golf resort in Pennsylvania will pay $55,000 in back wages to more than 200 workers after a federal investigation.

The U.S. Labor Department said an investigation of Heritage Hills Golf Resort and Conference Center revealed violations of federal laws for minimum wage, overtime, record-keeping and child labor provisions from February 2009 to February 2011.

Investigators said the York resort didn’t pay employees for all hours worked, failed to pay overtime when required and paid some workers less than minimum wage.

The company will pay $5,000 in fines to the Labor Department, which said five minors were required to work more hours than what’s allowed by law.

Heritage Hills general manager Matt DeRose told the York Daily Record that the resort “paid a very strong price for this unintentional mistake.’’
