Florida A&M University is ordered to pay $273,000 to 352 employees

After failing to accurately account for overtime work of 352 employees, Florida A&M University was ordered to make up for its error by paying $273,000 to the underpaid workers, the Associated Press reported.

The payment was ordered by the U.S. Department of Labor, whose fair labor standards were in dispute. A spokesperson for the university said the institution is now in full compliance with the department.

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools has placed Florida A&M on probation for at least six more months due to the problem.
