DOL Wage and Hour Division Announces Record Year

On October 31, 2019, the Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) has announced that in Fiscal Year 2019 it recovered a record $322 million of wages owed to workers. WHD also set a new record for compliance assistance events in FY 2019, holding more than 3,700 educational outreach events – including on-the-ground presentations and trainings – to help job creators understand their responsibilities under the law.

“…the U.S. Department of Labor is committed to ensuring that workers receive the wages they have earned,” said U.S. Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia. “These record-breaking numbers top the Department’s totals from last year, which also set records, and confirm our ongoing commitment to strong enforcement and to providing employers with the tools they need to comply with the law.”

Wage and Hour Division Administrator Cheryl Stanton also stated “We (WHD) are delivering a level playing field for employers and employees alike,”

"As with many small businesses, mine was presenting with a hurdle where I needed someone's expert opinion and assistance. I did my research and found Alex. I read through some of the other recommendations and reviews I found and had a good feeling that Alex could help me in my situation. I called Alex and from the very beginning he was extremely helpful.

Alex was able to explain to me, in depth, more about the hurdle I was facing and provided me with several options to assist me in getting over it. We made a plan of action and were able to get past it, allowing me to focus more on my business. What I admired about Alex was his tenacity as well as his communication. He kept me well informed through every step, as each step was happening.

Alex has my highest recommendation and we'd certainly call him again if in need.'
