The U.S. Department of Labor has accused a San Antonio funeral home of violating labor laws by failing to pay minimum wages and overtime compensation to some employees.
Castillo Mission Funeral Home Inc. and its president and owner, Zeferina Castillo, were named in a civil lawsuit brought by the agency on behalf of at least 16 funeral home employees. The funeral home is at 520 N. General McMullen.
The suit was filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in San Antonio.
Myra Castillo, a funeral home official also named in the complaint, said its lawyers were reviewing the lawsuit. She had no additional comment.
The funeral home also is accused of failing to keep records reflecting the hours worked each day by many of its employees. The suit seeks unpaid minimum wages and overtime compensation that may be owed to employees.
