NEW YORK STATE -- National Grid has agreed to pay more than $6 million to workers who were not properly compensated following Superstorm Sandy.

According to the New York State Attorney General's office, more than 8,500 employees in New York, Massachusetts and Rhode Island will receive $750s. According to a spokesperson for the electric and gas utility, a glitch in its new computer system is to blame.

The AG says he reached a $4.8 million settlement with National Grid.

Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley earlier announced a $270,000 fine against the utility for violations of wage and hour laws.
