Avoiding FLSA Violations

By May 1, 2017No Comments

Have you audited your practices for these common wage and hour exposures?

Exempt vs. non-exempt. Have you classified your exempt employees properly or are you risking an overtime exposure?

Rest and meal period violations. Is the employee truly relieved from work and are your time-keeping clocks tracking meals accurately?

Travel time. Many workers who start from their home and then go to multiple locations fall under “portal-to-portal laws.”

1099 misclassification. This is a significant exposure. The IRS and state agencies are looking to find as many people as they can who are classified as employees.

Failure to pay prevailing wage. If you’re working a government or quasi-government project, make sure you’re complying with all wage requirements.
