The U. S. Department of Labor has a long list of all the things that employers are doing wrong under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Misclassification of employees is one major area that both the USDOL and the IRS are clamping down on. Mistakes in classification can result in major settlements, including back pay, payment of fines, and reclassification. The second area that is being investigated is improper payment of overtime. The USDOL has said that employers are stealing wages from their employees and they intend to correct all those mistakes. Mistakes on payment of over-time can be expensive to correct, because if you have been making that mistake on one employee you have been making for many. Correcting overtime pay means going back two years or more to correct your mistakes. This can be very expensive.
WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND
Losing a wage case can be an expensive proposition. In addition to back wages, employers must also pay penalties, interest and the legal fees of the employees if they prove their case. These cases are difficult to defend because quite often employers did not know they were in the wrong, unfortunately, ignorance of the law is no excuse. While settlements may not amount to more than $5000 per employee, class action suits are common and may result in costs of over $200,000 to multi-million dollar settlements, depending on the size of the company.
