Eight Steps for Examining Your Wage Practices

Auditing Your Wage-and-Hour Practices


Wage-and-hour compensation issues remain some of the most active enforcement areas in employment law. These issues represent substantial lost wages for employees and lost tax revenues for government.

Self audits can serve as a key tool to help employers avoid wage-and-hour liability in the workplace, especially given the current climate of increased enforcement and scrutiny. Employers must ensure their records and practices are compliant, or they face significant legal risk. For example, under California's Fair Pay Act, employers must be particularly proactive to ensure pay equality between men and women performing similar work.

CalChamber's free "Eight Steps for Examining Your Wage Practices" white paper outlines key steps to keep in mind when planning for and starting a self audit.
