TX Company Pays Over $60,000 For Failing To Pay Vacation Wages

Boston, MA (CompNewsNetwork) - Attorney General Martha Coakley's Office has cited a Texas-based property management company and its president for failing to pay employees vacation wages after those employees left the company.  As a result of the citation, JPI Partners, LLC (JPI Partners), doing business in Massachusetts as Jefferson at Bellingham, LP, of Bellingham, and its president, Robert Page, of Irving, Texas, paid over $52,000 in back vacation wages to 26 former workers, as well as a $7,500 penalty to the Commonwealth.

In May 2008, Attorney General Coakley's Office began an investigation after the Office's Fair Labor Division received a complaint from a former employee who alleged JPI Partners had not paid vacation wages upon his termination.  Investigators reviewed the company's vacation policy and the company's payroll records and found that the company failed to pay 26 employees vacation pay upon termination or separation.  JPI Partners fully cooperated with the Attorney General's investigation.

The matter was prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General Thomas Johnson with assistance from Inspector Edward Minchello, both of Attorney General Coakley's Fair Labor Division.
