Federal Judge Orders kgb USA Inc. to Pay $1.3 Million in Minimum Wage Compensation to Current and Former Employees for Violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act

A federal judge has ordered kgb USA Inc. to pay $1.3 million in minimum wage compensation to 14,568 of its current and former employees nationwide for violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act. Judge James Knoll Gardner of the U.S District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania entered a consent judgment and order against the company, which agreed to the terms. The workers, who were hired to respond to text messages from customers, were home workers located throughout the United States. The consent judgment and order resolve an investigation by the U.S. Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division that found the company misclassified employees as independent contractors and paid them a piece rate based on the numbers of text messages and inquiries they responded to, without regard to the number of hours they worked. FLSA violations resulted when piece rate earnings failed to yield at least the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour.
