WIN Win Way Construction Co., through attorney Janet King, issued a statement stating that is “in full compliance with all the applicable provisions of the U.S. Fair Labor Standards Act” or FLSA.

King said WWW Construction will continue to comply and has reached a settlement of all past alleged violations cited by the U.S. Department of Labor.

USDOL last week stated that WWW Construction, a Saipan residential and commercial construction contractor, will pay $165,807 in back wages to 23 employees to resolve violations of the FLSA minimum wage and overtime requirements, and pay $15,755 in civil penalties.

The USDOL Wage and Hour Division investigators said WWW Construction paid workers building a hotel in Afetna, flat rates per day, in renminbi currency, which failed to cover the hours employees worked at the U.S. federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour.

According to the USDOL, this practice of paying flat day rates, regardless of the number of hours employees worked, also resulted in overtime violations when they worked more than 40 hours in a workweek.

Moreover, WWW Construction failed to record the actual number of hours employees worked, USDOL stated.
