In two recent cases, employers were fined for violating minimum wage laws related to uniforms.

Denny’s in Houston was fined under the Fair Labor Standards Act for deducting the cost of workers’ uniforms, since those deductions caused their pay to fall below minimum wage.

In violation of New York state labor law, Eulen America, an airline service company, didn’t reimburse workers for the cost of washing their uniforms, making their pay fall below the minimum wage.
