Department of Labor – There is an app for that

The Department of Labor Wage & Hour Division has recently released a smart phone app that allows employees to track their hours on their phone.  app-for-thatThis allows them to be readily aware of whether or not they should be receiving over time and how much.  In addition to putting this wage calculator in the employees hand (which isn’t a bad thing as employees deserve over time if they qualify for it),  20% of the app is dedicated to how to contact the department of labor if they have any questions.  This give businesses one more reason to need to make sure they are fully compliant with all the current wage and hour rules and regulations.  This is one of the great benefits of using a Professional Employer Organization, they  assist business owners in keeping up with the ever changing laws to help protect them from potential financial hazards they may not know exist, and allow them to focus on growing their business.
