The Massachusetts Attorney General's office reports fining the Red Hat, 9 Bowdoin St. $79,790 for "violating the state’s wage and hour and earned sick time laws."
The money includes both penalties and restitution for 15 workers.
As part of the investigation, the AG’s Office issued demands to the employer asking for payroll and time keeping records to which the business failed to fully respond. The investigation revealed that employees were regularly underpaid, paid late, or not paid for all the hours that they worked.
The bar was cited for similar offenses in September, 2019. In January, it was cited for failing to provide records to the state.
