Jerry and James Schram, brothers and business partners in Schram’s Excavating of Vancouver, WA agreed to pay $356,000 in back wages and unpaid workers’ compensation premiums. As part of a guilty plea, both brothers were given two years probation and 240 hours of community service. Jerry Schram will also serve 30 days in jail as part of the settlement. The back wages were to compensate employees who did not receive overtime pay even though they worked more than 40 hours a week. Schram’s Excavating pled guilty to hiding information used to set their workers’ comp premiums, which resulted in the company paying lower premiums.
