LinkedIn repays nearly $6 million in unpaid overtime

The company says 359 employees were not properly paid overtime dating back to February 2012

LinkedIn is all about jobs — finding jobs, connecting with jobs, and, according to a recent announcement following a U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) investigation, not adequately paying for jobs.

The social media site announced on August 4 that it has paid nearly $6 million in back wages and damages to 359 current and former employees who were not properly paid overtime between February 2012 and February 2014. The company must also inform managers about proper overtime pay regulations and protect against retaliation towards those who raise workplace issues.
