(AP) Federal officials say the San Francisco Giants have paid nearly $545,000 in back wages and damages to dozens of clubhouse and administrative employees for violations of minimum wage, overtime and record-keeping laws.


The U.S. Department of Labor announced the figure Thursday. According to labor officials, investigators found clubhouse employees were working more hours than were recorded, but receiving only a flat pay rate that amounted to less than the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour.


The Giants were also accused of not paying the employees overtime.


Giants spokeswoman Staci Slaughter says the team changed its clubhouse compensation system before the Labor Department inquiry. She says labor officials did not account for other sources of clubhouse employees' income, including tips and dues.
