During the course of 4,000 investigations into the 20 largest fast-food brands carried out by the Department of Labor, only 40% of Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. stores were in full compliance with the law. In total, these investigations lead to the discovery of more than 68,000 FLSA violations and some $14 million in back wages recovered for about 57,000 employees.
