You’re focused on growing your business – as you should be.
The last thing you want is for a government agency, whether it be Federal, State, or Local, to knock you back with an audit, a crippling fine, or even worse. In today’s world, it’s easier than ever (just a call or click!) for a disgruntled employee or former employee or competitor to alert agencies to what they believe is unlawful behavior in your workplace.
Last year, the Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) answered more than 913,000 calls from employees asking if their rights were violated. (The WHD provides assistance in over 200 languages.)
The WHD recovered over $100,000,000 from businesses who mistakenly or maliciously failed to properly pay their workers.
But paying your workers the correct wages and following all the laws isn’t always as straightforward as it seems. That’s because employment laws are constantly changing.
