State fines Pulte Homes contractors in pay case

Construction contractors working at Pulte Homes development sites were hit with more than $540,000 in fines and penalties yesterday for allegedly failing to pay dozens of employees.

The enforcement action was one of the largest in recent history focusing on the projects of a single home builder. Attorney General Martha Coakley’s office said that the laborers at the Pulte sites, many Brazilian immigrants, were not paid regular wages or overtime for several weeks of work by five subcontractors. Back wages totaled more than $190,000.
