BRUNSWICK, Ga. — Newly released documents show a coastal Georgia resort violated labor laws more than 500 times and collectively underpaid employees by more than $46,000. The Brunswick News obtained the documents relating to violations at the Sea Island Resort earlier this month through a Freedom of Information Act request of the U.S. Labor Department. The investigation into the resort lasted for more than two years. It found 240 violations of record keeping for workers younger than 18. There were also 167 failures to pay overtime and 98 violations of failure to pay minimum wage. Unpaid overtime totaled almost $46,000, while unpaid minimum wages exceeded $1,000.
