Department of Labor hires 250 new wage and hour investigators

November 24th, 2009 by

U.S. Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis recently issued a statement regarding the increased enforcement of the department’s Wage and Hour Division, announcing that she “hired an additional 250 new wage and hour investigators, a staff increase of more than one third, to ensure that we promptly respond to complaints and can undertake more targeted enforcement.”

Apart from the question if you agree with the need for this or not; what are you going to do about it? Do you need to do something? One suggestion: listen to one of KPA’s webinars by labor and employment lawyers from Ford & Harrison and Fine, Boggs & Perkins.
