Owners and operators of several Dunkin’ franchisees across Massachusetts will pay more than $145,000 to resolve over 1,200 violations of the state’s child labor laws, the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office announced Monday.

The management company, The Westford Group Inc., and its president and treasurer, Michael and Brian Marino, were issued five citations by the state for allegedly violating child labor laws at 14 Dunkin’ locations in Lowell, Worcester, Grafton, Millbury, Westborough and Leominster, Massachusetts. The Attorney General’s Office began investigating following a complaint from a minor employee, alleging that they were required to work more than 10 hours per day, according to a press release.
