Topgolf USA Oregon recently received a hefty fine for allowing minors to work in violation of US labor laws. The US Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) conducted an investigation and found that Topgolf USA Oregon had violated the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) by allowing minors to work in excess of the hours and times permitted by law.
The FLSA establishes minimum wage, overtime pay, recordkeeping, and youth employment standards affecting employees in the private sector and in Federal, State, and local governments. The law requires employers to pay employees at least the federal minimum wage for all hours worked and overtime pay at time and one-half the regular rate of pay for all hours worked over 40 in a workweek.
The WHD investigation revealed that Topgolf USA Oregon allowed minors to work beyond the hours and times permitted by the FLSA. The company was found to have allowed minors to work as early as 6:00 am, which is prohibited by the FLSA. Additionally, the investigation revealed that minors were allowed to work more than 8 hours in a day, which is also prohibited by the FLSA.
As a result of the violations, Topgolf USA Oregon was ordered to pay $14,000 in civil money penalties. The company was also required to provide training to its management staff on the provisions of the FLSA and to post a notice informing employees of their rights under the law.
The US Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division is committed to ensuring that employers comply with the law and that workers are paid fairly for their labor. Employers who violate the FLSA can face significant fines and other penalties. It is important for employers to understand their obligations under the law and to ensure that they are not violating any labor laws.
