An automaker has agreed to pay a fine in California over wage payment disputes, according to Reuters.

China’s BYD Co Ltd has agreed to pay a fine to settle a California lawsuit that alleged that it failed to pay five Chinese workers temporarily working in the United States the required minimum wage of $8 per hour, the news agency reported.

The company reportedly disputed the claims, saying that workers were paid the equivalent of $12-$16 per hour in Chinese currency. The company reportedly agreed to pay a $1,900 fine to settle the matter.
