Holbrook company to pay over $250,000 in damages, back wages to workers denied overtime

A Holbrook company has been ordered to pay dozens of workers who have been denied hundreds of thousands of dollars in overtime.
A Department of Labor division looked into the pay practices of Rollup Shutters and Awnings Inc., and its owner Murray Braun.
The review found that over three years, 35 employees were deprived of more than $126,000 in back wages.
The company must also pay an equal amount of liquidated damages, totaling more than $250,000.
Braun must also pay nearly $30,000 in penalties.
