Wage and Hour Investigations
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) sets
minimum wage and overtime pay standards for employment. The Act also gives
the U.S. Department of Labor's (DOL) Wage and Hour Division (WHD) the authority
to investigate and gather data regarding the wages and hours of employment
for entities subject to the requirements of the Act. Employers that violate
minimum wage or overtime pay provisions may have to pay back wages and penalties.
