FLSA Compliance: Dispelling Myths And Mastering Pay Policy Challenges For Non-Exempt Employees
|Date / Time:
Do you always pay overtime after eight hours? What about double time for holidays? These are just a couple of the questions that come up for employers concerning wage and hour compliance for their non-exempt employees under the Fair Labor Standards Act.
Getting the correct answers to these questions is crucial; if you aren't paying non-exempt employees the compensation they're legally entitled to under federal law, you could find yourself on the receiving end of hefty fines and penalties.
Case in point: The Upper Crust, a Boston-area pizza restaurant, fell prey to the WHD for allegedly failing to pay workers for back wages and overtime. As a result of a DOL investigation, the pizza maker will pay a staggering $850,000.
