BYD's sub-minimum wage charges dropped

Posted on January 30, 2014

The California Department of Labor Standards and Enforcement confirmed that the sub-minimum wage charges made against all-electric bus manufacturer BYD in October has been withdrawn.

“BYD produced substantial documents to the commissioner's office proving that BYD paid these professionals the equivalent of above the state minimum wage of $8 hour,” said Lanny J. Davis, attorney for BYD. “BYD documents prove that these professionals were in fact paid $12-$16 / hour. Therefore, the Commissioner's office has agreed to dismiss the minimum wage assessment based on the alleged under-minimum-wage payments. All five of these professionals were no longer working for BYD in California by the end of 2013.”

The Commissioner did still take issue with the fact that BYD paid the five employees in question in their home currency instead of U.S. dollars, with the company agreeing to pay the $1,900 fine for the alleged error.
