BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) -- Attorney General Maura Healey announced Friday that the owner of 10 Dunkin' locations will pay $120,000 for violating multiple child labor laws.

Her office stated he violated certain laws protecting minors “more than one thousand times across four of their Dunkin Donuts locations.”

About 20 minor employees worked hours either too late or too early, longer than their maximum daily hours, or he failed to obtain work permits for them, give the minors proper meal breaks, or supervise them after 8 p.m.

Govostes Management Group and owner Francine Weiner-Govostes were issues five citations and have since modified their practices to comply with child labor statutes.

Other chains that have violated child labor laws are Qdoba, Chipotle, and Wendy's.
