The Department of Labor estimates that more than 80% of companies are out of compliance with wage and hour laws. Wage and hour litigation poses a serious risk for businesses, and the DOL's Wage and Hour Division is stepping up enforcement efforts. But is the enforcement path chosen by WHD optimal? Is it providing positive outcomes for employers and employees? Some think that it has made complying with the Fair Labor Standards Act increasingly difficult, and WHD is failing to help good faith employers comply with the law. In this episode, we discuss wage and hour compliance with our guest, former Wage and Hour Division Administrator Tammy McCutchen. We talk about wage and hour "hot button" issues and why compliance is so difficult, the WHD's current "Gotcha" enforcement strategy, and what employers can do to proactively manage wage and hour issues, make sure they are in compliance, and avoid litigation.
