SC restaurant to pay back wages after fed probe

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - A Columbia restaurant chain has agreed to pay thousands of dollars in back wages as part of a federal investigation.

The U.S. Department of Labor said Thursday that the Miyo's restaurant chain has agreed to pay 97 employees a total of more than $44,000. Federal authorities say the company was in violation of overtime, minimum wage and record-keeping provisions at all 7 of its locations.

Investigators said restaurant employees often worked more than 40 hours a week without any overtime pay. Authorities also say Miyo's also didn't keep accurate records of employees' work hours and wages.

Company officials didn't immediately return a message. Since 2009, federal officials say they have investigated more than 300 South Carolina restaurants, resulting in the recovery of more than $2.5 million in back wages.
