Wage & Hour Law Course: Supervisors
Federal law sets out specific wage and hour requirements, but when supervisors miscalculate time worked or misclassify compensatory time and overtime, organizations can face steep legal consequences. According to published reports, the U.S. Department of Labor has shifted significant resources to agencies responsible for enforcing wage and hour compliance and health and safety laws.
