Hundreds of Employees Owed $1.3 million in Back Wages

The Globe has shared a list of over 30 local restaurants that owe a collective $1.3 million to almost 500 employees. The list comes from an enforcement initiative by the US Department of Labor and includes instances such as lack of overtime, incorrect wages, unlawful deductions and the misclassification of workers as independent contractors to shirk paying minimum wage, aka the least amount of money you should ever pay anyone. Many of the establishments are in the burbs but several are right here in town, including Miracle of Science, Tory Row and both the Harvard and Fenway locations of Cambridge 1. Entries 15 to 30 are all Not Your Average Joe's.
