Restaurant to Pay #112,212 in Back Wages to Settle FLSA Case

Monday, March 26, 2018
An investigation by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division found that Min & Kim Inc., an Ann Arbor restaurant doing business as Seoul Garden of Ann Arbor, violated the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Min & Kim Inc. was ordered by a federal court to pay $112,212 in back wages to 27 employees to resolve alleged federal wage violations, including failure to pay overtime and maintain accurate payroll and time records.

Investigators determined Min & Kim Inc. paid cooks, sushi chefs, cooks’ helpers, servers, dishwashers, and busboys a flat amount of money per day, regardless of the number of hours they worked. When employees worked beyond 40 hours in a workweek, the company failed to pay legally required overtime.

The order by the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Michigan, Southern Division resolves a lawsuit brought by the Department against the restaurant and its owners, Kounwoo Hur and Sung Hee Kim, to recover the wages.
