  • On March 6, 2018, the U.S. Department of Labor announced that it was implementing the Payroll Audit Independent Determination Program (PAID) to allow employers to resolve potential overtime and minimum wage violations without having to go to court. All employers covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) are eligible to participate in this pilot project. Employers will be asked to identify their business and review a series of short videos on FLSA topics. After the employers complete the compliance assistance review, the program will generate a Certificate of Completion which allows the employer to conduct a selfaudit of its compensation practices.
