Pipeline management company ordered to pay millions in back wages, damages

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A federal court has ordered a West Virginia pipeline construction management company to pay 300 safety inspectors $3.7 million in back wages and liquidated damages.

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division found Team Environmental LLC did not pay employees overtime when they worked more than 40 hours a week, a violation of federal regulations. The missed payments occurred between October 2012 and May 2015.

Team Environmental LLC, based in Millwood, is also enjoined from future similar violations.

According to the company’s website, it works with companies involved in the natural gas industry.

The company will pay $1.85 million for back wages and an equal amount regarding liquidated damages.
