Nursing-home managers did not know when employees were working at other facilities that shared ownership, she said. She said state labor laws differ from federal laws on requiring overtime pay for work done at separate companies with shared ownership. “It was a totally innocent situation,” she said. “It’s not intentional.” Labor officials said the firm worked with the department to resolve the issues identified in the investigation and confirmed that measures are now in place to ensure that all hours worked by employees at multiple facilities are combined for overtime pay. Charles F. Bostwick, (661) 267-5742 chuck.bostwick@dailynews.com LANCASTER – Twenty-five employees at two Lancaster nursing homes will share $79,000 in back pay ordered by a U.S. Department of Labor investigation into overtime pay. Federal officials said the homes were among 13 in Southern California, owned jointly by Emmanuel and Ofelia David, that did not pay overtime when employees split their time between two or more facilities to work more than 40 hours a week. “The workers in this case were not getting their full pay, and I am glad that we were able to recover $637,000 in back wages for them,” U.S. Secretary of Labor Elaine L. Chao said in an announcement by her department. In all, 212 workers received back pay last month totaling $637,000 for work performed between December 2002 and July 2005 at the 13 facilities, the Labor Department said. The facilities were located from Riverside County to Los Angeles, and included Antelope Valley Healthcare and the neighboring Antelope Valley Care Center on 15th Street West in Lancaster. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
