Allied Waste Services of Massachusetts, LLC (Allied Waste) agreed to pay $1,327,567 in additional restitution discovered during an audit required by a previous settlement with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. In 2009, Allied Waste had reached an agreement to pay restitution of over $404,000 and a $50,000 penalty to settle certain prevailing wage and overtime violations for trash disposal work performed at the Oak Bluffs/Tisbury Transfer Station. At the same time, Allied Waste agreed to an audit of its prevailing wage and overtime calculation for all employees in Massachusetts. According to a press release issued by the office of Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley, Allied Waste cooperated with the Attorney General’s Office throughout the investigation. Due to the complexity of prevailing wage and overtime calculations, Vision Payroll strongly recommends that employers consult with a competent labor law attorney to assure compliance with these laws.
