DOL Wage & Hour Penalties
By: Rob Lynn
Recently the Walt Disney Company paid a $3,800,000.00 in back wages to 16,000 of their employees. The back wages & penalties were assessed because of the wage & hour errors:
These type of wage & hour errors are very common and can be easily avoided:
· Employers should not make employee deductions that take their workers below minimum wage.
· Employers must accurately track and pay for all the hours their employees work.
· Employers must also be aware of any type of work done by the employee before or after their scheduled shift.
· Employers should also make sure that their employees are defined correctly under the exempt/non-exempt status.
