Coming Soon: The U.S. Department of Labor’s PAID Pilot Program
What does PAID Stand for?
Payroll Audit Independent Determination.
What is the PAID Program’s purpose?
This pilot program is intended to test the efficiency of a self-reporting program to correct wage hour violations discovered by an employer and to create a mechanism whereby the employer may correct violations without having to pay attorneys’ fees – its own or the employees – and liquidated damages, i.e. double the amount of the past due wages owed.
