10 wage and hour questions every employer needs to answer
Alleged violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) are on the rise in federal courts, according to data collected by the Federal Judicial Center. FLSA cases rose from 1,282 in 2000 to 8,375 in 2016. In addition, there were about 21,000 cases with violations in 2016 filed with the Department of Labor for overtime and minimum wage, with $200 million paid in back wages.
