BMY Foods Inc


The defendants did not pay 300 current and former workers at nine Papa John’s franchise establishments the legally required overtime pay. They paid overtime hours in cash and created fake names for the employees in the timekeeping system to get around paying overtime pay. They filed fraudulent tax returns that left off the cash payments made to the fake employees.
