The Top Ten Issues Discovered During an FLSA / Who Gets OT Audit
The team of HR Experts at OperationsInc has conducted hundreds of Audits for clients over the years to help examine who is eligible for overtime (OT), and how the client is addressing employee classifications. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) determines who gets OT and who does not, NOT the employer. Further nuances in the law dictate how to calculate the time to be paid, and even in cases of certain states (like CA) when OT is earned. It is very common for employers to incorrectly classify, and therefore incorrectly compensate, their employees resulting in the potential for fines and some huge payments to current and former employees for failure to properly pay them.
