The Miami Marlins and the San Francisco Giants have agreed to settle Labor Department investigations into possible violations of U.S. wage standards by agreeing to give back wages to underpaid workers.

Giant health insurer Humana Inc. faces multiple federal investigations into allegations that it overbilled the government for treating elderly patients enrolled in its Medicare Advantage plans, court records reveal.

The status of the investigations is not clear, but they apparently involve several branches of the Justice Department. The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Miami wrote in a court document filed in March that officials expect that at least one of the probes will be completed and the findings made public “in the next few months.”
