LinkedIn surely will not be receiving any recommendations for a specific skill anytime soon. That skill would be the company’s ability to pay its workers the overtime they deserve.

According to CNN, the Department of Labor announced this week that the company will pay $3.3 million in overtime back pay on top of $2.5 million in damages to current and former employees. The number of current and former employees is 359.

LinkedIn failed to keep track of the total hours employees worked in multiple branches within the company, according to an investigation from federal regulators. The Labor Department said that LinkedIn “has shown a great deal of integrity by fully cooperating with investigators and stepping up to the plate without hesitation to help make workers whole.”

The company said that the problem was “a function of not having the right tools in place for a small subset of our sales force to track hours properly.” LinkedIn also said that it “has made every effort possible to ensure each impacted employee has been made whole.”

LinkedIn also reached an agreement with the Labor Department on implementing multiple reforms to ensure that the problem does not happen again in the future.

“Off the clock’ hours are all too common for the American worker,” Susana Blanco, director of the Labor Department’s San Francisco office, said in a statement. “This practice harms workers, denies them the wages they have rightfully earned and takes away time with families.”
