W.Va. pipeline firm ordered to pay $3.7M for OT violations

MILLWOOD, W.Va. (AP) — A natural gas pipeline construction management company has been ordered to pay $3.7 million in back wages and damages to safety inspectors for failing to pay overtime wages.

The statement says the company failed to pay overtime to employees who worked more than 40 hours in a week.

According to the company’s website, Team Environmental has conducted inspection services for natural gas companies in Appalachia since 2007.
