Wage & Hour Law

Wage and hour lawsuits are on the rise, and no business owner should assume they are exempt. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, a record $220,000,000 in back wages was collected for over 341,000 employees in 2007. The most successful businesses understand this risk and take proactive measures to stop lawsuits before they happen.

Reasons For an Employee Handbook
