Labor complaint will move through legal system

by Krystal Paco

Guam - A complaint filed against a local company for Fair Labor Standards Act violations will continue to move through the legal system. This after District Court Chief Judge Frances Tydingco Gatewood denied Acme Universal's motion to dismiss.  Two years ago Acme Universal Inc. and general manager Xin Bo "Paul" Yu were accused of underpaying workers and overworking them.  According to the lawsuit, the Harmon construction company paid 16 workers less than the applicable federal minimum wage for three years. The U.S. Department of Labor alleges the laborers were forced to work more than 40 hours a week but were never given overtime compensation. In an order issued today, the case was referred to the magistrates judge to set a new trial date.
