Administrative & FSLA Compliance
For employers, FLSA compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Acts and related state laws is crucial for ongoing success. However, the Department of Labor (DOL) estimates that 80% of small to mid-sized companies are in some degree of non-compliance with FLSA regulations and laws. Such non-compliance is a more significant issue than most business owners realize.
A single employee’s complaint can build into a class action lawsuit by a bevy of employees recruited to the cause. Failure to follow the rules and regulations of the Fair Labor Standards Acts also can result in regulatory penalties.
By working with an Employer of Record (EOR), business owners can better protect their interests.
FSLA Compliance & the Department of Labor
The DOL’s Wage and Hour Division enforces FLSA compliance, often focusing on small to mid-sized companies that are more vulnerable to these challenges. For example, the FLSA maintains basic standards of payroll processing for both employers and employees. Beyond keeping a partner company in FLSA compliance with such rules, SCS makes sure payroll runs smoothly.
Smooth payroll processing generates a positive work environment where the issue of FLSA claims does not threaten the ongoing success of a business. By maintaining wage & hour standards, we help keep your company in compliance with DOL regulations. As an Employer of Record, Strategic Contracting Services strives to maintain the highest levels of FLSA compliance standards.
Avoiding the Pitfalls of FLSA Compliance Violations
The pitfalls of wage and hour violations need to be avoided for two other reasons. First, employees who believe their FLSA rights have been violated often go directly to a lawyer and then to the courts. Regardless of the nature of the claims, such litigation is expensive for any company. By partnering with us, you avoid this potential expense.
Second, in the past decade, the Wage and Hour Division has increased FLSA compliance enforcement efforts. With additional investigators on the Federal payroll, more industries are being targeted. Having your company targeted is the last thing a business owner wants.
