Last week, the Department of Labor (DOL) announced that it had ended the employer self-reporting wage and hour program that was implemented by the Trump administration. The Payroll Audit Independent Determination program (PAID), which was launched in 2018, allowed employers to self-report potential wage and hour violations under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and get assistance from the DOL to resolve the issue. In so doing, the employer was given the opportunity to resolve the problem with their affected employees and at the same time, avoid the litigation and the imposition of additional penalties. At the same time, it is reported that the program since its inception successfully collected over $7 million in backpay for more than 11,000 workers across the country.
