Federal regulators say Omaha's Happy Hollow Club has paid nearly $66,000 in back wages to 38 workers who weren't properly paid overtime or were required to turn in a percentage of their tips.

A press release from the U.S. Labor Department said Tuesday that the club violated several provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act.

The department says the club wrongfully took a percentage of the tips to help pay people who cleared tables. The club also didn't follow guidelines on minimum wages after the tips totals were added to the $2.13 an hour in direct wages. And the department says some employees' time records weren't maintained.

The department says the club has agreed to comply with the regulations. A club representative didn't return a call.
