The Hidden Costs of Compliance

Updated: Nov 11, 2022


In every workforce management implementation, compliance is critical. Fines erode bottom-lines, but that’s only the beginning. Beyond fines, also at risk is employee retention because non-compliance alters employee perception, lowers morale, undermines engagement, triggers turnover and jeopardizes your brand and reputation. With so much at stake, we see compliance as best practices that silently drive ROI. But what about those fines? They’re steep, growing as our society becomes increasingly litigious, and the reality is that you have exposure at the local, state and federal levels. To understand how pervasive the problem is, consider the three statistics below– that illustrate just how serious, courtesy of the US Department of Labor Statistics – Wage and Hour Division, from 2011-2015.

  • 3 Million Case Violations Issued

  • 7 Million Employees Found in Violation

  • 3 Billion in Total Back-Wages to be Paid

We protect clients with a multi-faceted process that understands the complete picture
