CVS Pharmacy Settles Wage-Hour Charges

CVS Pharmacy, Inc., has
agreed to pay $226,598 in penalties and $38,151 in back wages to settle U.S. Department
of Labor (DOL) allegations that the company violated wage and youth labor
provisions of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The DOL says an
investigation revealed that 78 minors at CVS stores in the Northeast were
exposed to hazardous work, in violation of the FLSA, and seven others worked in
violation of the law’s time standards. Additionally, the DOL found that 51
employees were due back wages, mostly because store managers improperly edited
their timecards.
