Are your wage-and-hour compliance. The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) last month completed its promised hiring of 250 new wage-and-hour investigators—a 33% increase in its investigative force.
Plus, starting in early 2010, the WHD will be teaching your workers how to sue. The agency plans to launch a national “public awareness campaign” to inform Americans about their wage-and-hour rights.
Says Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, “We will not rest until the law is followed by every employer, and each worker is treated and compensated fairly.”
