FAYETTEVILLE: This Is It! BBQ fined for labor violations

FAYETTEVILLE: This Is It! BBQ fined for labor violations

FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. -- A popular local restaurant chain was accused of numerous violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act.

This Is It! BBQ & Seafood owed $104,089 in back wages to 230 employees at five of its locations, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. The restaurant was also fined $1,867 for allowing minors to work later than allowed by federal law.

The investigation found that two This Is It! restaurants in Decatur, as well as the locations in Fayetteville, Lithonia and East Point, failed to pay employees extra for working overtime and did not pay minimum wage to those who worked for tips. The company also allowed employees under age 16 to work later than 9 p.m. during the summer and 7 p.m. at other times of the year, which violates the FLSA's restrictions for young workers.
