Avoid Costly Lawsuits by Automating Your Time & Attendance Systems

“You have a lawsuit on your hands” this is probably one of the scariest statements a business could ever hear! Believe it or not overtime can become the basis of a lawsuit come audit time if employers and employees do not track their time appropriately.

According to www.businessmanagementdaily.com Federal class actions brought under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) outnumbered all other types of private class actions in employment-related cases. Particularly hard hit employers in California, Florida, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and Texas. Did you know that the top 10 wage-and-hour labor class-action settlements in 2008 totaled $252.7 million?

So it’s easy to understand that overtime based lawsuits are all over the news today. This helps to highlight the importance of accurate time and attendance systems and time clocks. Don’t find yourself in the position of Starbucks or Levi Strauss, both hit with million dollar plus overtime settlement judgments.

Here’s what you should be asking yourself…Is your time keeping system robust enough to combat frivolous lawsuits? Overtime litigation is not solely for Fortune 500 companies. In June of this year a Tampa, FL based sushi restaurant was forced to pay employees 54k in overtime back wages. And a Northern CA HR Services bureau was recently forced to pay 209k for a group of employees mis-classified as exempt.
