Boston (WHDH) – Owners of 10 Dunkin’Donuts restaurants in Massachusetts will pay $ 120,000 to solve thousands of child labor violations, Attorney General Maura Healey said Friday.
Healy’s office said in a press release that Gobostes management group and owner Francine Weiner Gobostes has made five allegations of violating child labor laws in four facilities.
Alleged violations include minors who worked earlier or later than the legally permissible working hours, minors who worked longer than the maximum allowable time of the day, who did not receive a work permit for minors and in the afternoon. Including minors who worked unsupervised after 8 a.m. After working more than 6 hours, I never took a meal break.
“Companies that employ young workers have a responsibility to protect them by complying with child labor laws,” Healy said... “This reconciliation helps young people to be on the safe side when they gain valuable work experience.”
Healy’s office then said that Gobostes changed its practices to comply with child labor laws, including adapting planning systems to underage employees and retraining all managers.
