Proper Record Keeping is Key

August 22, 2012 0 Comment

Do you keep careful time records for your employees? How careful? Even if you think you are doing the right thing, you still may want to check again.

Employers are required to keep time records showing when the employee begins and ends each work period, as well as meal periods, split shift intervals and total daily hours worked. Other records are also required.

We are currently defending several class-action cases in both State and Federal Court in which hundreds of employees are claiming that they were not paid for overtime and were not given meal breaks. Both clients kept copious records. Will they be sufficient? Hopefully. But wouldn’t you rather get it right before the lawsuit is filed?

De Castro & Morrow is available to advise employers to ensure that their records are clean. And also to ensure that the employer is following all of the other complex employment laws. Let’s be proactive together.
