LinkedIn Agrees To Pay $6 Million In U.S. Labor Department Settlement


LinkedIn Corp. will pay close to $6 million to over 350 current and former employees after the U.S. Department of Labor found the company violated the country's wage laws. In the settlement LinkedIn will pay $3.3 million in back overtime wages and another $2.5 million in damages to workers. David Weil, the administrator of the Labor Department's Wage and Hour Division said, LinkedIn has "shown a great deal of integrity by fully cooperating with investigators and stepping up to the plate without hesitation to help make workers whole." Shannon Stubo, Vice President of corporate communications said, "This was a function of not having the right tools in place for a small subset of our sales force to track hours properly."
