Kryger Glass Co. has agreed to pay 53 workers back wages of $107,476 following an investigation by the department’s Wage and Hour Division. According to the investigation, the company violated the Fair Labor Standards Act’s overtime and record-keeping provisions when night delivery drivers were improperly classified as exempt from overtime pay. Investigators found that $52,187 was due to 33 employees at the Omaha, Neb., location, and $55,289 to 20 employees at the Kansas City location. The Kansas City, Mo.-based company operates retail auto glass repair shops and wholesales products to those retail stores and auto dealerships.
