Wage & Hour
Our professionals primarily rely on three methodologies: observation, self-report questionnaires, and structured interviews.
BRG experts have worked with hundreds of organizations to evaluate wage and hour compliance, both in response to litigation and pro-actively to promote compliance and minimize legal risk. Our professionals primarily rely on three methodologies: observation, self-report questionnaires, and structured interviews. These methodologies are recognized by courts and are designed to collect detailed data regarding what work employees actually perform on the job, the time spent on this work, and the context in which that work is done. Our extensive experience in this area allows us to quickly identify potential vulnerabilities.
Types of issues addressed include:
- Managerial misclassification
- Independent contractor misclassification
- Off-the-clock work
- Timekeeping and payroll issues (e.g., time rounding)
- Meal and rest break compliance
