The Village to pay $232K in back wages

Yikes! Looks like The Village (L and 3rd) will be paying back some wages to workers not paid for over-time in addition to fines for allowing teens to work long hours and handle hazardous equipment!

According to Universal Hub, US District Court Judge Leo Sorokin signed a consent order to end a lawsuit by the US Department of Labor against Klaundjon Totoni and The Village.

Not only does Totoni have to pay $231,683 in back wages plus taxes he will also pay $16,634 in fines for the child-labor violations and $8,317 in fines for the wage violations. He also agreed to hire a consultant to help with a bookkeeping system for tracking workers’ hours and pay.

Gheesh!

  1. Dang, I frequented this place at one point in my life, sad to see. At least it wasn’t some nasty food safety violations.

    I will say though, this definitely has to be happening at like 10% of establishments in the City.

  2. Place has gone DOWN after the original owner ” KELLYS FROSTIE VILLAGE” sold it after many years..ot was originally at the corner of I & COLUMBIA ROAD back in the day..
