Knowing the wage and hour laws and applying them is one of the basic requirements of the payroll profession. But whether new to payroll or a seasoned professional the question can arise—what are the laws in effect at this time? Lists, payroll chat rooms, blogs and classrooms discuss this question constantly. And questions arise every day when new company policies are added or amended. Questions such as: Are the employees entitled to a break or meal period? Is vacation pay required? How is on call pay handled? This week’s white paper addresses 23 common areas of wage and hour law that you need to review on your own payroll to see if you are in compliance. I am not going to provide the answers for you of course. That would take an entire payroll manual. Instead I am pointing out the most common areas that have compliance issues and that usually get audited by either federal or state Departments of Labor. This week on Part 1 I will be covering the first 10 areas. Next week, in Part 2, I will be discussing the last 13 areas. Be sure to request your white paper today by going out to my website.
