In an increasingly litigious climate between employees and employers, ensuring compliance with the Fair Labor and Standards Act (FLSA) is more vital than ever—especially regarding wage and hour laws. According to a report commissioned by ADP, 90% of employment law class actions are wage and hour disputes. Taken from the top 10 settlements for wage and hour lawsuits, the average settlement was $34 million.
The U.S. government is also taking a far more aggressive stance regarding compliance. ADP’s report indicates that up to 70% of employers are not in compliance with the FLSA, which has spurred the Department of Labor to consider issuing sanctions against violators. The Wage & Hour Division of the DOL developed extensive recordkeeping regulations to help make finding violations easier for auditors.
For employers who aren’t in compliance with wage and hour laws, there’s nowhere to hide—the only answer is in ensuring compliance for the entire company.
