Wage & Hour Watch

Welcome to the Wage & Hour Watch, which features ruminations and insights derived from Compliance Specialist Mike Staebell's 33 years enforcing federal labor laws for the US Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division.

These articles will offer tips on staying in compliance, updates on new laws and regulations, and how to deal with DOL investigations should you be subjected to one.
