Florida company caught not paying worker for time worked or time on COVID-19 quarantine


A Sanford maker of fishing lures got caught not paying an employee money due under a pair of federal acts, the U.S. Department of Labor announced.

Labor’s Wage and Hour investigators found Producto Lure didn’t pay an employee two weeks of emergency sick leave after a doctor ordered the employee to self-quarantine for the coronavirus. Producto owed that money under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, which applies to some public entities and private employers with fewer than 500 people.

Wage and Hour also found Producto owed the worker for work done before the self-quarantine, a basic violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
