The U.S. Department of Labor said an investigation found LinkedIn Corp. in violation of overtime and record-keeping rules that are part of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act. It said the violations occurred at company branches in California, Illinois, Nebraska and New York.
A representative for Mountain View, California-based LinkedIn did not immediately respond to a message for comment.
LinkedIn agreed to pay the back wages once it was notified of the violations and to take steps to prevent them from happening again.
Federal law requires that hourly employees get paid 1.5 times their regular hourly rates for hours they work beyond 40 per week.
