Wage & Hour Compliance

The federal Fair Labor Standards Act and state wage and hour laws establish complicated and convoluted requirements as to how and how much your employees must be paid. Unions and plaintiff's attorneys have seized upon this vulnerability in recent years, making wage & hour litigation an extremely significant risk facing many employers.  Franczek Radelet assists employers in navigating complex wage and hour requirements to develop practical solutions which ensure compliance and minimize potential exposure to claims.  We advise and assist clients in all aspects of wage and hour law, including:

  • Satisfying wage and hour recordkeeping obligations;
