    Investigation finds nearly 250 workers with disabilities improperly paid by a company located in Illinois - The Department of Labor revoked their certification under Section 14 (c) of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

    Section 14(c) of the FLSA is designed to offer more job opportunities for workers with disabilities when their disability affects their productive capacity for the work being performed. After applying for and receiving a certificate from the Department’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD), the employer may gauge their hourly workers’ productivity and calculate the appropriate sub-minimum wage as a percentage of the rate for experienced workers performing similar jobs in the area under the Section 14(c) provisions.
