Employment law can be a source of frustration for clients and employers in general. Several of our clients have undergone audits by various federal and state agencies, including Wage & Hour Division, OSHA, and state Departments of Labor, and found that they were out of compliance with some aspect of employment law. Employers should be aware of their responsibilities under these laws in order to avoid fines and penalties.
