Employment law is a complicated area, not least of which for the employers who have to make sure everything is in line and that the company is compliant with all of the rules and regulations -- in addition to overseeing the continued success of the company. So when it comes to serious legal issues that your company faces from an employee, you need to be prepared for all of the complexities it can present.
One common form of lawsuit filed by an employee against his or her current or former employer is a wage and hour lawsuit. These tend to be very complicated because the issue at hand could deal with many variables. Of course, the most obvious is the individual's pay. But it can also entail other forms of compensation, benefits, retirement accounts, and other elements.
This is why it is so important that all companies have an organized and well-maintained record system that keeps track of all the time that people have worked, in addition to how their benefits and compensation is supposed to be handled. Improper record keeping is a major reason that companies get into trouble for wage and hour violations.
