New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says his office has settled an investigation into contractor Signal Restoration Services for underpaying subcontractor wages during the emergency cleanup of three hospitals following Sandy last year.
 
The Troy, Mich.-based company that contracted to clean up Bellevue Hospital, Coney Island Hospital and Coler-Goldwater Memorial Hospital in New York City has agreed to pay $466,000 in back wages, $25,000 to the attorney general's office and $46,000 into an escrow account. The agreement was signed this week.
 

The deal says about 500 cleanup workers were generally paid $12 to $15 an hour instead of the prevailing wage of $16.99 an hour and $25.49 for overtime last November.
