LinkedIn has agreed to pay $6m (£3.6m) in wages and damages after regulators found it failed to account for all the hours worked by its employees. This includes $3.3m in unpaid wages and $2.5m in damages to be paid to 359 former and current employees. It also agreed to provide compliance training and distribute its policy on overtime work to all applicable staff. The firm said talent was its "number one priority" and it was eager to "rectify the situation".
