The Department of Labor said Thursday that Iftikhar Malik, the owner of three McDonald's restaurants in or near the Pittsburgh International Airport in Findlay, paid $38,609 in back wages to 34 workers after an investigation found his company violated the Fair Labor Standards Act.

The company, Shawn Malik Inc., required workers to work at more than one of its restaurants, but failed to include all of the hours when determining wages, which resulted in overtime pay violations, said John DuMont, director of the Wage and Hour Division in Pittsburgh.

The company paid the workers their regular rate, regardless of the number of hours worked, DuMont said. The violations occurred between February 2007 and October 2009. Malik could not be reached for comment.
