In 2008, Federal wage and hour investigations produced $209 per investigation hour in back pay awards, the majority from overtime violations including misclassification of nonexempt employees as exempt. Since then, the DOL has increased its investigative work force by more than a third and established cooperative agreements with thirteen states, the IRS, and other federal agencies.
In May of this year, a misunderstanding of the exemption from FLSA overtime requirements under the Motor Carrier Act cost an employer $376,000 in back wage payments to 177 employees. Despite the recent US Supreme Court ruling that pharmaceutical sales representatives are exempt from FLSA overtime requirements, employers should remain cautious in classifying employees as exempt given the increase in agency emphasis on proper employee classification under federal and state labor laws.
