PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- The state Attorney General's Office recently charged the owner of a Port Chester restaurant with failing to pay the minimum wage and overtime to five former employees.

Elisa Parto, owner of Elisa’s Food & Plus, hired cooks, cleaners and cashiers who allegedly worked over 40 hours a week and were never paid the state-mandated minimum wage nor were they paid time and a half for the hours worked after they reached 40 hours, according to the attorney general.

In all, Parto allegedly failed  to pay more than $35,000 in legally required minimum wages and overtime, the attorney general said.

Parto faces a maximum jail term of one year, and both she and her company face maximum fines, in addition to restitution, of $5,000 for each count.
