Carl’s Jr., the restaurant chain once headed by President Trump’s original nominee to head the Labor Department, has been fined $1.45 million for shortchanging its workers. The violations occurred between July and December of last year.

The city of Los Angeles ordered the company to pay about $900,000 to employees and $541,000 in penalties for failing to pay minimum wage.

Until this spring, Carl’s Jr. was headed by Andrew Puzder, who withdrew his name from consideration for the labor post after allegations of spousal abuse. Puzder has been a harsh critic of minimum-wage laws.
