After an investigation by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD), Cowboy LKN LLC – a restaurant based in Cornelius, North Carolina – has paid a $12,085 civil money penalty for violating the child labor requirements of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).  WHD determined the Cowboy LKN LLC – operating as Cowboy Steak Chicken Ribs – violated child labor requirements by allowing 15-year-old employees to work outside of legally approved hours, and for more hours than allowed by law.
