Get the Latest App for Your iPhone…From the DOL?!!

Filed under: General HR Buzz2:21 pm

As we all know, the DOL apparently has been spending time conducting audits, reviewing wage and hour complaints.  Apparently, they have also been spending time developing a smartphone application designed to help employees independently track the hours they work and the wages they are owed.

As described by the DOL, “this is a timesheet to record the hours that you work and calculate the amount you may be owed by your employer.  It also includes overtime pay calculations at a rate of one and one-half times (1.5) the regular rate of pay for all hours you work over 40 in a workweek.”  They go on to say “this information could prove invaluable during a Wage and Hour Division investigation when an employer has failed to maintain accurate employment records.”

The app, currently available for Apple iPhone and iPod Touch devices, also has a convenient “contact us” bottom with links that allow users to easily call or send an e-mail to the DOL’s Wage & Hour Division.  This seems to be sending a clear message to employers:  make sure you keep accurate, thorough records of your employees’ hours and wages because the DOL is making it very convenient for employee’s to track on their own.
