Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) recently released a federal report showing that 66 of the federal government’s 100 largest contractors have been caught breaking federal wage and hour laws.
This data is not inconsistent with our practice experience, in which a properly focused audit can find a wage and hour violation at almost any workplace.
Don’t get caught with your overtime flank exposed. Conduct an internal audit of your company’s workplace payroll practices before a federal or state labor audit does something far more painful.
