The Department of Labor (DOL) has extended the pilot program called the Payroll Audit Independent Determination (PAID). Is it something your company should participate in?
As you may know, the program is designed to help employees get paid for wages earned and to help employers correct past payroll mistakes. The PAID program began last April and will now be extended until April 2019.
Under the program, employers may self-report a wage violation to the DOL, along with a calculation of back wages owed. The employer then agrees to pay 100% of back wages owed over a two-year period.
