WEST COVINA, Calif. -- A Southern California noodle company has agreed to pay more than $195,000 to dozens of current and former employees, settling a federal claim that it cheated them out of overtime pay.

The U.S. Department of Labor announced a consent judgment Tuesday with Rama Food Manufacture Corp. of Ontario and two company officers. They agreed to pay back wages and damages to 36 current and former employees. The firm also will pay more than $13,000 in penalties.

Regulators say the company paid employees straight time for working more than 40 hours per week instead of required premium pay, and also failed to keep proper time and payroll records.

A message left for company officials wasn't immediate returned Tuesday. An employee says the managers are on vacation.
