The federal government has cited a Utah restaurant supply company connected to the polygamous Kingston sect for violating child-labor laws, amid stepped-up enforcement efforts in the region.

The U.S. Department of Labor announced Tuesday that its Wage and Hour Division investigated South Salt Lake-based Specialty Consulting Services LLC — operating as Standard Restaurant Supply — and found violations of child labor work hours and standards, based on the Fair Labor Standards Act.

The division assessed $16,595 in penalties to resolve the violations, the labor department announced.

According to the department, the investigation found the company “allowed 22 employees, ages 14 and 15, to work as many as 46 hours per workweek.” It also found that these employees began to work after midnight.
