Unraveling the past few weeks at Boston Market


Adding to a growing pile of legal and financial woes for the Boston Market corporation, the New Jersey Department of Labor ordered the shutdown of 27 Boston Market locations across the state for multiple instances of labor violations and fined the restaurant company nearly $2.6 million, according to a state department press release issued on Aug. 15.

After an investigation, the New Jersey Department of Labor found that the company owed $607,000 in back wages to 314 workers across the 27 locations in New Jersey, and violations included unpaid/late payment of wages, hindrance of the investigation, failure to pay minimum wage, records violations, failure to pay earned sick leave, and failure to maintain records for earned sick leave.
