Boston (WHDH)-Owners of 10 Dunkin’Donuts restaurants in Massachusetts will pay $ 120,000 to resolve thousands of child labor breaches, Attorney General Maura Healey announced Friday.
Healy’s office said in a news release that the Gobostes management group and owner Francine Weiner Gobostes had issued five citations for violating child labor laws at four facilities.
Suspected violations include minors who worked earlier or later than the legally permitted hours, minors who worked longer than the maximum permissible time of day, failed to obtain a work permit for minors, and afternoons. Includes minors who worked without supervision after 8 o’clock. After working for more than 6 hours, I didn’t take a meal break.
“Companies that employ young workers are responsible for keeping them safe by complying with child labor laws,” Healy said... “This reconciliation helps young people to be safe when they gain valuable work experience.”
Healy’s office then said Gobostes changed its practices to comply with child labor laws, including adjusting scheduling systems to accommodate underage employees and retraining all managers.
