According to a recent report, up to 80% of all employers fail to comply with federal and state wage and hour law requirements. That's a startling number but one worth noting. There's substantial legal risk to employers, including the risk of class actions, from these violations, which often are easy to prove. Employers of all sizes should check with their attorneys to be sure that they comply.
Thanks to Carrie Kurzon of The Ottinger Firm for posting information on this problem.
