Employers, how familiar are you with employee rights after deployment, discrimination in the workplace, proper wages for hours worked, unpaid job protected leave and safety in the workplace?
Members of the Department of Labor (DOL) will review the labor laws that are most critical for employers to follow: Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), Federal Child Labor Laws (CL), Veterans Employment and Training Services (VETS), Employee Benefits Security Administrations (EBSA), Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA), and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
Why are these laws so critical? Because when violations are found, employers must immediately change practices and policies and may have to pay back wages. Repeat violations can result in financial penalties, liquidated damages or a U.S. district court injunction. An employer's best defense is knowledge of and compliance with DOL laws.
