Señor Fish agrees to pay workers $90,000 in back wages, damages

Señor Fish, a chain of seven Southern California restaurants, has agreed to pay almost $90,000 in back wages and damages to 74 employees, federal labor officials said Tuesday.

The chain agreed to the payment to resolve violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act, according to a release by the U.S. Department of Labor.

An investigation by the department's Wage and Hour Division found that the restaurant chain did not pay overtime to employees who worked more than 40 hours a week and did not record cash payments to workers.

As part of the settlement of the case, the department will offer the chain’s employees training on wage and hour laws. It will also promote the department’s smartphone app that allows workers to record weekly hours worked.

Señor Fish has restaurants in Los Angeles, South Pasadena, Alhambra and Duarte.
