June 1, 2012 - PRLog -- The Department of Labor estimates that more than 80% of companies are out of compliance with wage and hour laws. Wage and hour litigation poses a serious risk for businesses, and the DOL's Wage and Hour Division is stepping up enforcement efforts. But some think the WHD's enforcement strategy has made complying with the Fair Labor Standards Act increasingly difficult, and WHD is failing to help good faith employers comply with the law.

On Thursday, June 7, former administrator of the Wage and Hour Division Tammy McCutchen will join Stephanie R. Thomas, Ph.D., host of The Proactive Employer, at 12 Noon Pacific to discuss wage and hour "hot button" issues and why compliance is so difficult for employers. We'll also talk about the Wage and Hour Division's current "GOTCHA!" enforcement strategy. The episode will conclude with a discussion about what employers can do to proactively manage wage and hour issues, make sure they are in compliance, and avoid litigation.

The Proactive Employer airs live on Thursdays at 12 Noon Pacific / 2 PM Central / 3 PM Eastern on the VoiceAmerica Business Channel. Archived shows are available through the VoiceAmerica website, iTunes, and The Proactive Employer website,
