Violation Description: 

After a U.S. Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division investigation of Citigroup Technology Inc. in Tampa, the employer paid 882 employees a total of $1,870,009 in back wages and a civil penalty of $97,680 for repeat violations. The division's investigation focused on CTI's Anti-Money Laundering Division and its practice of classifying analysts improperly as administratively exempt from the FLSA's overtime requirement. By misapplying an exemption to these workers, CTI denied them overtime compensation when they worked more than 40 hours in a work week. The employer also failed to maintain required time records for these employees, as required by law.
