Jeans maker Levi Strauss & Co. has agreed to pay more than $1 million in overtime back-wages to 596 employees nationwide, including those employed at the Waikele outlet store.

The agreement, with the U.S. Department of Labor, followed the department’s finding that the company violated overtime and record-keeping provisions of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act.

The San Francisco District Office of the DOL’s Wage and Hour Division found that the San-Francisco-based clothing manufacturer and retailer had misclassified several groups of employees as being exempt from overtime. The department also found that some assistant managers were required to work off-the-clock during late-night closings, early-morning openings and staffing shortages.
