Five Black Hills resorts are facing steep payments in the form of back pay to almost 300 workers.
Three area hotels, a campground and a Colorado-based hospitality company are being hit with more than $124,000 in back pay after a U.S. Department of Labor investigation.
According to the agency, the companies owe money to 293 employees for violating minimum wage, record-keeping, and overtime laws.
The Department also alleges the businesses violated the nonimmigrant visa program for temporary workers.
Additionally, the Labor Department fined those companies $79,500 in civil penalties for repeat or intentional violations.
