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.
