A New Rochelle eatery—Golden Rod Restaurant—that is part of a chain has agreed to pay a $1 million lawsuit settlement, according to the United States Department of Labor.
The chain—Asian Moon—which also has locations in Garden City and Massapequa Park, allegedly did not pay 255 workers minimum wage and overtime. According to Newsday, the bulk of the alleged violations occurred on Long Island.
Under the agreement, which a judge signed off on late Monday, the company agrees to pay $1,085,752 in back wages and damages to the employees. It will also pay about $98,000 in civil penalties to the department.
The New Rochelle restaurant is located on East Main Street.
