Calif. warehouse operator must pay $1M in overtime

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- State regulators have ordered a Southern California warehouse operator who handles merchandise for big-box stores like Walmart to pay employees more than $1 million in unpaid overtime.

State Labor Commissioner Julie Su says two facilities operated by Chino-based Quetico LLC shorted wages for 865 workers.

Investigators say employees were also denied legally required lunch and rest breaks.

Besides back wages, the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/125hugY ) says Quetico has been fined more than $200,000.

Quetico didn't immediately respond to voicemail and email messages sent early Tuesday.
