The Point Brugge Cafe has paid $37,719 in back wages to 39 employees, as a result of a Department of Labor investigation that found violations of minimum wage laws. Labor department officials said Monday the Point Breeze restaurant violated the Fair Labor Standards Act by requiring tipped employees to repay register shortages, resulting in their pay falling below federal minimum wage.

The business failed to reimburse servers for tips that they were illegally required to pay out to dishwashers.

Back wages owed have been paid in full, the Labor Department said, and the business agreed to comply with federal labor laws.
