USDOL - PAID Program
Outreach and Planning Specialist
of the U.S. Department of Labor
The Wage and Hour Division?s (WHD) new nationwide pilot program, the Payroll Audit Independent Determination (PAID) program, facilitates resolution of potential overtime and minimum wage violations under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The program?s primary objectives are to resolve such claims expeditiously and without litigation, to improve employers? compliance with overtime and minimum wage obligations, and to ensure that more employees receive the back wages they are owed?faster.
Under the PAID program, employers are encouraged to conduct audits and, if they discover overtime or minimum wage violations, to self-report those violations. Employers may then work in good faith with WHD to correct their mistakes and to quickly provide 100% of the back wages due to their affected employees.
WHAT WILL BE COVERED:
1. How is PAID a win for employees?
2. How is PAID a win for employers?
3. How is PAID a win for taxpayers?
4. How long will the pilot program run?
5. Who can participate in this pilot program?
6. May employers use this program to resolve claims that are already being investigated or litigated?
7. What if an affected employee files a lawsuit without knowing that the employer is already participating in the PAID program?
8. What types of violations does this program address?
9. What if an employer has already paid back wages to employees before participating in the program?
10. Can an employer participate in the program if it did not keep records of the hours its employees worked?
11. Does this program require employees to participate?
12. Why would employers participate in the program if they can perform their own internal audits and pay whatever additional wages they conclude are appropriate?
