The U.S. Department of Labor has filed a federal civil lawsuit against Subway restaurant owners Joseph and Tammy Hray of Hray Enterprises of Warren, Ohio, alleging the company violated labor laws.

According to the lawsuit, from July 21, 2009 and July 2, 2011, the Hray’s did not pay 68 of its workers the correct minimum wage, which at the time was $7.25 an hour. The lawsuit also says that 24 workers were not paid overtime, and that underage workers were permitted to operate trash compactors and bailers, which is a direct violation of federal laws and that twenty-one workers were not paid the minimum wage, and were denied overtime.

The stores involved in the lawsuit are at 7192 Warren-Sharon Road, Brookfield;  4602 Mahoning Ave., Warren; 2016 Millennium, Blvd., Cortland, 231 Main Street, Warren; and 3001 Elm Road, Warren Ohio.

In 2005, Hray Enterprises was fined for child-labor law violations for $4,620 and was ordered to pay $1,463 in back pay to 10 employees.

The current lawsuit seeks back pay and additional civil penalties, the Vindicator reports.
