Is your company at risk for violations or penalties?

Unfortunately, even minor mistakes or small misinterpretations of the FLSA's wage and hour laws can lead to major problems within an organization.  Penalties, litigation, and hefty fines have cost companies millions.

The Department of Labor is cracking down on organizations that are not in compliance with the FLSA.  New investigators have been added to the DOL's payroll, allowing greater access to businesses across the country who may not be fully in compliance.  The costs in multi-year back pay, interest, and lawsuits can be astronomical.
