The U.S. District Court of Middle Tennessee has ordered the former owner of a Nashville restaurant to pay $220,000 in back wages to 31 employees after being found in violation of minimum wage, overtime and record-keeping provisions, The Nashville Post reports. According the the U.S. Department of Labor, former employees worked at Woodlands Indian Vegetarian Cuisine about 60 hours per week, which caused them to earn less than the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour. It also says overtime was not paid to employees who worked more than 40 hours per week and that the employers did not keep records of what hours employees were working.
