........................................................................................................................................................................................

The U.S. Department of Labor has filed a lawsuit against Nine Fortune LLC, doing business as China Wok in Albuquerque, and its owner, Hau Fu Cheng, seeking to recover $38,508 in wages for kitchen staff, cooks and dishwashers.

A department investigation, conducted by Wage and Hour Division personnel, has concluded the company violated the Fair Labor Standards Act by failing to pay the employees overtime, the department said in a news release.

The department also is seeking $20,900 in civil penalties.

The complaint seeks back wages and liquidated damages for 19 employees and an injunction to prevent future violations of the FLSA.
