George's Processing, Inc., a Cassville poultry processing plant, has agreed to pay $1.235 million in back overtime wages, according to a U. S. Department of Labor news release.
"In addition to the back wage payment," the news release said, the judgment also enjoins George's Processing from future violations of the overtime and recordkeeping provisions of the FLSA. Under the terms of the judgment, the company agreed, without admission of liability, to locate and pay back wages to all current and former employees over a period of the next 12 months. At the end of that period, all undistributed payments will be returned to the Labor Department's Wage and Hour Division for final disbursement."
The pay covers the period from Nov. 19, 2000, to April 15, 2006, the news release said.
