City employees paid after labor review

SALISBURY — Following a review of city of Salisbury labor practices by the U.S. Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division, three employees have received compensation.
The review conducted under the Fair Labor Standards Act was based on an assessment of the past two years. Findings of the review were issued to city officials by written notification from the Department of Labor on Nov. 29.
The review disclosed violations of Fair Labor Standards Act Section 7 resulting from the failure to pay statutory overtime pay for those worked in excess of 40 hours per week. These violations resulted in underpayments totaling $2,010.28 due to three employees.
The city was not assessed penalties as a result of this review.
In a press release, Human Resources Director Zack Kyle said, “Based on the findings of the recent DOL review, the city of Salisbury has provided back payment to three Salisbury-Rowan Utilities’ employees. After completion of the DOL’s review, the City of Salisbury is in compliance. Our staff is devoted to continue labor practices that ensure total compliance with all provisions of the FLSA well into the future.”
Interim City Manager Doug Paris said, “As a city we thank the DOL for their work during our recent review and are appreciative of their findings. They have identified areas that will help us improve our FLSA compliance to best serve our employees.
“In addition to the recommendations by the DOL, the city of Salisbury will continue FLSA training at the supervisory level and the city will also establish a FLSA Compliance Committee which will conduct biannual spot checks of departments to ensure compliance with FLSA standards.”
