Wage and hour compliance is a complex undertaking due to overlapping and often conflicting federal and state regulations. The Federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) establishes the basic federal minimum wage, overtime pay, child labor, and recordkeeping requirements for covered workers, which must be followed when recording hours worked. In addition to the FLSA, various states have their own laws regarding minimum wages, overtime pay, hours worked, child labor, and recordkeeping requirements. These state laws have their own civil and criminal penalties.
To comply with all applicable wage and hour laws, we already implement all known requirements when we set up your time and attendance system and also assist with our expert knowledge from numerous installations. Once set up, the system will automatically ensure compliance and notify you by email or push message, so you can take immediate action.
By making compliance part of the corporate culture, organizations protect themselves from risk now and in the future. If key influencers are engaged and lead by example on compliance, others will follow and "business as usual" will provide a virtual safety net for the company. However, changing the corporate culture is only part of the solution. Using technology in combination with a culture of compliance is the most effective approach. Automated time tracking ensures accuracy and effective time and overtime management.
