The US Department of Labor wants you to know

USDOL wage and hour

That they are actively enforcing the Wage and Hour laws. But that’s because they want you to be in compliance so everyone is playing on a level playing field.

That being said, they suggest that you read some of their Fact Sheets and work with both your HR team and your Legal team to assure that you are in compliance and if you’re not, to address that fact before they have to address it.

Here are some of the Fact Sheets that may be of interest:

Remember, even though you may be in compliance with Federal Law, you may be out of compliance with State and Local laws.

Our advice, err on the side of caution!
