Battle Creek ordered to pay employees for unpaid overtime

BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) -- The City of Battle Creek has been ordered to pay its employees 80-thousand dollars in back-pay by the U.S. Department of Labor.

They have a week from Friday to comply.

The federal agency has found that the city has been improperly calculating payments for overtime for years, perhaps decades.

Under federal law, they are only required to reimburse the employees for the last few years of lost overtime pay.

 265 current and past employees will be notified this week if they have checks coming and when to pick them up from Battle Creek City Hall.

The Firefighters were the first to challenge the city on the way it figured their extra-hours. They were reimbursed separately.
