Wage & Hour Compliance

The Department of Labor estimates that 80% of employers have some degree of non-compliance with wage-hour laws.

Many employers are shocked when they learn how a single employee’s complaint can result in a major collective action lawsuit. Compliance with the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and related state laws can be difficult for any employer. Failure to comply—even when it is an  unintentional error—has proven very expensive.

Importantly, employees who believe they have not been compensated in accordance with FLSA can go directly to court and are not required to first submit their complaint to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). In addition, DOL has significantly increased enforcement efforts, hiring additional investigators and targeting industries and practices with an emphasis on claimed exemptions and working time issues.

Our FLSA consultants have extensive expertise in FLSA compliance and FLSA risk analysis. Our FLSA consulting specialists' work with all types and sizes of companies in various locations and industries has given us broad experience to help our clients face a wide range of FLSA liabilities and complexities.
