DETROIT — The federal government said a Michigan health system has agreed to pay $90,000 in an overtime dispute with 22 employees.

The employees work in the cardiac sonography department at Detroit-based Henry Ford Health System.

The U.S. Labor Department said sonographers would start up to 45 minutes prior to their actual shifts and sometimes work through breaks to complete time-sensitive assignments.

The government said they weren't compensated.

Timolin Mitchell of the Labor Department's Wage and Hour Division said, “Employees must be paid for all work time.”
