The U.S. Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division’s (WHD) new nationwide program, the Payroll Audit Independent Determination (PAID) program, facilitates resolution of potential overtime and minimum wage violations under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The program’s primary objectives are to resolve such claims expeditiously and without litigation, to improve employers’ compliance with overtime and minimum wage obligations, and to ensure that more employees receive the back wages they are owed—faster.
Attendees of the seminar will learn how under the PAID program, employers are encouraged to conduct audits and, if they discover overtime or minimum wage violations, to self-report those violations. Employers may then work in good faith with WHD to correct their mistakes and to quickly provide 100 percent of the back wages due to their affected employees.
The Missouri Department of Labor Division of Labor Standards (DLS) is an active partner with the PAID program and encourages all interested employers to participate in the PAID program. DLS will collaborate with WHD on PAID program determinations provided by Missouri employers, and work with such employers to satisfy their state minimum wage and overtime obligations on top of their FLSA obligations.
This event is eligible for 2.0 hours of CLE credits.
