- Each day of failure to pay constitutes a separate and distinct violation
Please note that as defined by legal dictionary
, the term "chapter" refers to the entire bill. Which implies that the separate and distinct violation per day applies to each penalty category.
The separate and distinct per day violation, as defined, can result in significant monetary penalties. Additionally, if wages and fines are not paid within thirty (30) days of final decision and after notification, the state has the authority to revoke the company's business license until full payment is made, or a payment agreement is finalized.
