After several complaints, a two-year investigation by the U.S. Department of Labor found that Levi's had misclassified several groups of its workers so that they couldn't bill overtime. As a result, many store employees "were required to work off-the-clock during late-night closings, early morning openings and staffing shortages" without getting paid for their extra hours, according to officials. But there's a happy ending: These stiffed salesfolks are now getting checks in the mail for their back wages, and a Levi's spokesperson says the company has "worked cooperatively" with the Department of Labor to upgrade its systems.
