Adult residential care home operator Travis Homes of Porterville, Calif., has agreed to pay $42,868 in minimum and overtime back wages to 19 employees. An investigation by the Wage and Hour Division found the employer in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act’s minimum wage, overtime and record-keeping provisions. Travis Homes paid the workers below federal minimum wage and failed to pay the required overtime premium for hours worked beyond 40 in a workweek. The employer signed a written agreement assenting to surrender its license if found in violation of state and federal law in the future.
