Southern California Pizza Co., an Orange-based franchisee of Pizza Hut, was cited for violations at six Pizza Hut locations, including $19,002 in wages owed to 36 low-wage employees. Most of them worked at the companys location in the unincorporated community of Los Nietos. (AP Photo/Gerald Herbert) PUBLISHED: | UPDATED: September 1, 2020 at 3:31 p.m. Los Angeles County investigators have reached settlements of nearly half a million dollars with three Southern California-based companies that underpaid workers at Original Tommy’s Hamburgers and Pizza Hut locations. The county’s Department of Consumer and Business Affairs targeted the companies for violations of the county’s minimum wage ordinance. The owners of Tomdan Enterprises Inc. and Koulax Enterprises Inc. , which operate as Original Tommy’s, have agreed to pay $397,775 in back wages and fines for violating the ordinance. Wage investigators found the companies underpaid 96 low-wage workers over a period of three years dating back to July 2016. They have agreed to pay $147,775 in back wages in addition to $147,000 in fines to the employees and $103,000 in fines to the county. In a statement issued Tuesday, Tomdan and Koulax said management recently learned that two of its 19 locations were technically in unincorporated L.A. County, despite having mailing addresses in incorporated cities. Those restaurants were compliant with state minimum wage regulations, but unbeknownst to Tommy’s, should have been compliant with the L.A. County’s minimum wage order. California’s minimum wage is $12 an hour for businesses with 25 or fewer workers and $13 an hour for companies with 26 or more employees. In unincorporated regions of L.A. County, it’s $14.25 for businesses with 25 or fewer employees and $15 for operations with 26 or more employees. “Immediately upon being made aware of the error, the company rectified employees’ hourly rates, determined back-wages due to employees and made payments to its active employees for the back-wages plus state-required interest, the statement said. Chief Financial Officer Richard Hicks said the companies strive to provide employees with the benefits and wages they are entitled to. “We are making this error right for our current team members and those that are no longer with us,” he said. Southern California Pizza Co. , an Orange-based franchisee of Pizza Hut, was cited for violations at six Pizza Hut locations, including $19,002 in wages owed to 36 low-wage employees. Most of them worked at the company’s location in the unincorporated community of Los Nietos. The company agreed to pay the back wages and fines of $60,000 to the affected workers and the county, boosting the total to $79,002. The three companies will collectively pay $476,777 in back wages and fines to 132 low-wage workers and the county of Los Angeles. Southern California Pizza representatives could not be reached for comment. “During the pandemic, it is crucial that our essential workforce is paid what they are owed,” L.A. County Supervisor Hilda L. Solis said in a statement. “As a former U.S. Secretary of Labor, I am well aware that a smaller paycheck at this critical moment means that some households may have to decide between putting food on the table and paying rent.” Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas agreed. “Paying employees less than permissible by law will simply not be tolerated in the county,” he said. “Employers need to be put on notice.”
