Our round-up of the latest Natick, MA business news:
Pizza Peddler hit by US Labor Dept.
The operator of Pizza Peddler in Natick and Wellesley must pay more than $300K in back wages and liquidated damages to 14 employees after the U.S. Department of Labor obtained summary judgment in federal court.
The payments, according to the. Department of Labor, result from the defendants’ willful violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act. The court concluded that the employers failed to pay the required overtime compensation when employees worked more than 40 hours in a workweek, according to the Department of Labor statement.
According to a MetroWest Daily News report, the owner’s lawyer said the family-run business plans to work with the Department of Labor to resolve the matter.
UBreakiFix sign’s up
There’s nothing more exciting for us than happening across a business sign being raised or taken down. We’ll take one of these over a cheesy ribbon-cutting any day.
We stumbled across a couple of guys in a lift putting up the sign for a new UBreakiFix electronic device repair shop at the 9/27 Plaza. They seemed to be working deliberately, careful to avoid a WeBreakWeFix situation.
The shop sits in between Panera and a UPS Store. A Scottrade stock brokerage firm used to occupy the space, but that outfit has been gobbled up by another.
