What Can an Employer Do to Minimize the Risks?
Although there may be nothing an employer can do to eliminate the possibility that some employees will work time that is not compensated, employers should consider a number of steps to minimize the likelihood of uncompensated work and subsequent wage claims. This white paper reviews the steps that employers could take including minimizing any work-related activities that employees are asked to handle away from their primary work location and may want to limit employee access to and use of electronic devices away from the workplace, and adopting broader policies and procedures that will encourage employees to report their time fully.
