A New York restaurant chain has agreed to pay just over $1 million for failing to fairly pay employees.

The U.S. Labor Deapartment said Asian Moon of Garden City and Massapequa Park, and Golden Rod in New Rochelle agreed to settle the federal charges after being accused of failing to pay 255 workers minimum wage and overtime. Most of the violations occurred in Long Island. Vickie Sue Lee, the chain’s president, was also a party to the settlement, said Newsday.

A judge signed off on the agreement on Friday, and the company will pay $1,085,752 in back wages and damages to the employees. The company will also pay about $98,000 in civil penalties to the department, Newsday reported.
