GPD up against labor fines deadline

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Guam Police Department has less than one week to respond to the U.S. Department of Labor regarding the nearly $50,000 civil penalty they got for failing to pay their officers overtime last fiscal year. GPD has yet to pay more than $200,000 in overtime to more than 200 of its officers.

USDOL Wage & Hour District Director Terry Trotter says they are now waiting for the agency's response, telling KUAM News, "If they come up against the deadline to pay and they didn't file a timely exception then it would be like a final order. They were given a process and they didn't follow the process then that process would be to file a timely exception within 15 days in receipt of the letter, if they failed to do that then it would become a debt owed as opposed to an administrative hearing to determine the merits of their argument for either being reduced or waived."

GPD Captain Mark Charfauros says they drafted a response requesting to meet with the feds regarding their cash dilemma. He says the response first needs approval from the governor and the attorney general.
