LinkedIn Corp has agreed to pay nearly $6 million to more than 350 current and former employees after a U.S. Department of Labor investigation found the online career-networking company violated the country’s wage law. In a settlement announced by the Labor Department on Monday, LinkedIn will pay more than $3.3 million in back overtime wages and more than $2.5 million in damages to workers at company branches in California, Illinois, Nebraska and New York. David Weil, the administrator of the Labor Department’s Wage and Hour Division, said in a statement that LinkedIn has “shown a great deal of integrity by fully cooperating with investigators and stepping up to the plate without hesitation to help make workers whole.” A LinkedIn spokeswoman said that talent is the company’s No. 1 priority and they were eager to work closely with the Labor Department to reach the settlement.
