Two Pennsylvania based companies and their staffing agencies recently learned, the hard way, that the Department of Labor (“DOL”) is aggressively targeting employers who allegedly violate the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) by failing to properly pay employees the minimum wage and the overtime hours they may have worked. Both companies utilized temporary workers who were provided by outside staffing agencies to perform work in their facilities. According to the DOL, the temporary workers who worked for one company were paid $6 an hour, in cash, and did not receive time and a half for any overtime hours they may have worked.
