PLACENTIA, Calif. (AP) - An Orange County recycling company has been ordered to pay $113,000 in back wages and damages to its workers after accusations that it violated wage laws.

The Orange County Register reports (https://bit.ly/1OBrNha ) that according to the U.S. Labor Department, Placentia-based Sanchez Recycling has been accused of paying seven workers in cash, denying them overtime pay and failing to keep records.

President and owner Alfredo Garcia Sanchez says he is paying the fine but that it is “unjust.”

This is the second Orange County recycling investigation in less than three months. In March, the Labor Department forced Garden Grove-based Garcia Recycling to pay 15 workers $200,378 for wage and hour violations.
