Wage & Hour Litigation is Coming from Remote Workers

The US Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division recently issued "guidance regarding employers’ obligation under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA or Act) to track the number of hours of compensable work performed by employees who are teleworking or otherwise working remotely away from any worksite or premises controlled by their employers" that is a must read by employers / HR professionals. 

We addressed this issue on the Lieb Cast on 8/2/2020's segment 3 at the 9 minute mark well before the guidance was ever issued as this advice was a no brainer for a quality employment attorney like Mordy Yankovich

We advise you now that Fair Labor Standards Act lawsuits are coming. 

Are you prepared? 

To get prepared, you need to immediately establish "a reasonable process for an employee to report uncompensated work time."
