March 29 — An operator of five assisted living facilities in San Jose, Calif., owes $443,460 for alleged state law minimum wage and overtime violations, according to a citation announced March 28 by the California Department of Industrial Relations.
The company, TJ Homes Corp., must pay 22 caregivers $192,050 in back wages, $150,200 in liquidated damages and $26,855 in interest, the DIR Labor Commissioner's office said in a statement. The state also is seeking $74,355 in civil penalties.
The DIR received a complaint in April 2015, and an investigation of the adult care centers revealed that employees were not paid overtime despite working up to 12 hours per day. They also were forced to cover night shifts without pay, paid below San Jose's $10.30 per hour minimum wage and given pay stubs with missing information, the state said.
Attempts to reach TJ Homes for comment March 29 were unsuccessful.
