Criminal Referral of Los Angeles Car Wash for Violations

A second Wage and Hour investigation of labor practices at car washes owned by the Pirian brothers in the Los Angeles area has disclosed new overtime and recordkeeping violations under the Fair Labor Standards Act. The employer was on probation for wage theft after being ordered to pay almost $1 million in restitution as a result of a criminal wage theft case that began nearly five years ago. The current investigation disclosed $24,627 in back wages due to 96 employees. The department has referred the case to the Los Angeles City Attorney for criminal prosecution.
