The US Department of Labor sued an auto repair shop that paid 91 thousand pennies to its employee as a salary.
The incident itself occurred back in March 2021, Business Insider clarifies. Andreas Flaten from Fayetteville to Georgia resigned from OK Walker Autoworks, but the last salary was not paid to him. The man complained to the US Department of Labor.
In response to the complaint, the employer left 91 thousand pennies as a salary on the driveway of the former employee’s house. Flaten considered this a mockery and complained to the authorities again.
Officials considered the incident for 10 months and finally decided to take the case to court. The head of OK Walker Autoworks is accused not only of illegal revenge. The company will be responsible for not paying employees overtime.
