Wage & Hour Compliance Assessment
In 2015, the Wage & Hour Division initiated more than 40% of investigations and found violations in 79% of those investigations. The most common violations include failure to record all hours worked and failure to pay overtime. The Wage & Hour Division collected over $175 million from employers for FLSA violations in 2015.
Compliance with the FLSA is critical to avoiding fines and litigation. Unfortunately for employers, the regulations are extremely complex, and it can be very difficult to determine how the provisions apply to various types of industries and jobs.
The good news is you can protect your company against ever-increasing wage and hour cases with our Wage & Hour Compliance Assessment. This impartial, in-depth review will help keep you in compliance.
