Wage and hour compliance

Employers have many reasons to monitor wages and hours carefully, and to ensure workforce resources are being used effectively. It's also important to ensure compliance with federal and state law, and that time worked is accurately captured and categorized.

Our attorneys help businesses manage their wage-hour compliance and develop appropriate compensation and timekeeping practices. In addition to providing day-to-day advice, we perform periodic wage-hour audits and evaluate job descriptions in light of actual job duties to offer advice for achieving and maintaining exempt status under the Fair Labor Standards Act and similar state laws.

Our services include:

  • Wage-and-hour audits
  • Timekeeping policy review and development
  • Strategic review of compensation plans and procedures
  • Job classification analysis
  • Safe harbor corrections
  • Advice regarding pay deductions
