US Department of Labour said on Monday that an investigation found LinkedIn in violation of overtime and record-keeping rules that are part of the federal Fair Labour Standards Act. It said the violations occurred at company branches in California, Illinois, Nebraska and New York.

A representative for Mountain View, California-based LinkedIn could not immediately be reached for comment.

The Labour Department says LinkedIn agreed to pay the back wages once it was notified of the violations, as well as to take steps to prevent them from happening again.
