Rick Ross and his family are being fined by the Feds for allegedly neglecting their employees

Rick Ross and his family are being fined by the Feds for allegedly neglecting their employees. 

The family, who own 5 restaurants throughout Mississippi, reportedly illegally took money out of employee's checks for various services and had to pay for damages.

According to Mississippi Today, The Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division says the Mississippi stores made their employees illegally pay for uniforms, safety training, background checks, and even cash register shortages. They were also found to be illegally deducting money from workers’ wages, leaving some with take-home pay of less than $7.25 an hour.

“Restaurant industry employees work hard, often for low wages, and many depend on every dollar earned to make ends meet,” Jackson’s Wage and Hour Division director, Audrey Hall, said in a statement. “The law prevents Boss Wing Enterprises LLC from shifting operating costs to workers … or to allow a worker’s pay to fall below the minimum wage rate.”

The operators of the locations are also accused of record-keeping violations, with the DOLWHD saying they failed to maintain a record of employee hours worked and wage deductions. The investigation also discovered Boss Wings allowed a 15-year-old employee to work past 10 p.m. on multiple occasions. The DOL says it recovered $51,674 in wages owed to 244 workers and fined the franchise company $62,753 in civil penalties.
