BMW Paid $630,000 in Overtime Back Wages

Greer-based BMW Manufacturing Co. has agreed to pay nearly $630,000 in overtime back wages to 1,224 workers to resolve violations of FLSA overtime requirements.

BMW was found failed to pay employees for the time they spent donning and taking off required personal protective garb before clocking in and after clocking out of work.

Under the requirement of FLSA, employers should pay covered employees at least the federal minimum wage for all hours worked and time and one-half their regular rate of pay for hours worked over 40 in a week.

Spokeswoman for the Greer plant said checks for the computed back pay would be sent to affected employees and former employees within 90 days.
