Why Wage And Hour Issues Are Not A DIY Project

Developing and administering compensation plans is a complex task, as both federal and state wage and hour laws govern this area. Therefore, it is not an area you should do yourself, hoping for the best. The consequences of poor decisions made in compensation matters are severe.

Tough Consequences For Poor Decisions

For example, in Connecticut, if your employee takes you to court on a wage and hour issue and you lose your case, you may have to pay up to two times your employee's legal fees as well as the compensation in question.

In Massachusetts, the consequences are even more severe, as you might pay up to three times the wages in question in addition to your employee's attorney's fees.

Do not attempt to create compensation packages on your own without experienced legal advice. Instead, talk to Robert Fortgang Associates, LLC, the wage and hour lawyers in Simsbury.
