Employers Beware: Employment Law Compliance Gurus are Doing it Wrong!
On December 16, 2015 American Futures Systems (aka Progressive Business Publications) and its owner Edward Satell were handed FLSA violation fines requiring them to pay back wages totaling $1.75 million to employees who were deprived of minimum wage and overtime pay. So, why do we care? Well, I care because this company publishes employment law compliance newsletters that tell us how to do it right. I, personally, have spent a lot of money subscribing to their publications, which I believe are very good and give accurate guidance. So, why did they do it wrong? How did this happen? Good Question! Hang on.... I have the answer.
