OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - An Omaha plumbing company accused of falsifying payroll records has been placed on probation and ordered to repay more than $138,000 in wages.

The U.S. attorney’s office in Nebraska says Vincentini Plumbing paid employees less than the prevailing wage between June 2010 and July 2011 while the business performed work on two building projects for the public school district in Council Bluffs.

Vincentini Plumbing does business under V & V Construction. A message left for the construction company was not immediately returned Tuesday night.

A press release Tuesday says the company was given three years of probation on charges of violating federal law that requires participants on a qualifying federal contract to pay a prevailing wage. A federal court imposed a $25,000 fine and ordered more than $138,000 in restitution.
