The IRS, the Department of Labor, the EEOC, state agencies, and trial lawyers have put employers on notice: Wage and hour issues are a “significant problem with adverse consequences". To address this problem federal and state agencies have hired additional auditors and committed additional resources to identify noncompliance. As a result, employers’ exposure to liabilities associated with wage and hour issues is increasing.
Of particular concern are employers’ classification of employees and independent contractors, employers’ determination of employees’ exempt and nonexempt status, the payment of wages for “non-work time,” and the issue of pay equity. To prevent wage and hour violations and reduce their exposure compensation related liabilities, employers must take proactive measures to properly classify workers, ensure that managers and supervisors are knowledgeable of wage and hour requirements, correct pay errors when they occur, publish a notice that they are committed to compliance, and demonstrate that commitment through effective governance and risk management practices, including internal audits.
