Silicon Valley Chip Maker Faulted for Not Paying Employees on Time

Advance Modular Technology Inc., a Silicon Valley electronic chip board manufacturing company in San Jose, Calif., failed to pay the Fair Labor Standards Act’s required minimum wage and overtime premium to 15 workers. An investigation by the Wage and Hour Division found that the employer had missed payroll since February 2014. Advance Modular Technology also failed to pay required overtime for all hours worked beyond 40 in a workweek. The employer paid $54,120 in back wages due and liquidated damages to the workers. The division also is working on securing a consent judgment.

“Companies need to understand the importance of paying employees on time,” said Susana Blanco, the division’s district director in San Francisco. “Employers also need to know that failure to pay wages can result in liquidated damages in an equal amount to the back wages found due.”
