Gallo's, Taco King ordered to pay Alaska workers $850,000 in back wages

FAIRBANKS — Gallo’s Mexican Restaurants and Taco King Inc. has agreed to pay more than $850,000 in overtime and damages to 159 employees in Alaska, the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development announced Wednesday.

Gallo’s Mexican Restaurant and Cantina in Fairbanks is located at 60 College Road, and Taco King is located at 200 Old Steese Highway. The company also has restaurants in Anchorage.

The agreement is one of the department’s largest recoveries of overtime wages and was secured by the department’s Wage and Hours Administration, according to a department news release. A recent investigation revealed the company had violated the Alaska Wage and Hour Act and failed to keep accurate payroll records.

A previous investigation into Gallo’s Mexican Restaurants and Taco King Inc. showed the business had violated Alaska labor and wage laws, resulting in a $50,000 collection of unpaid wages and damages.

1. Good news for those workers who had their wages stolen

It would be really nice to see a time and place where such actions also incurred a criminal penalty for the owners, but that is likely never to happen.
