I recently asked an in-house counsel which compliance issues kept him awake at night. His reaction was immediate: wage and hour land mines. Describing concerns about unpaid overtime, off-the-clock work and misclassification of exempt employees as a “speeding train hurtling down the track,” he admitted that he had difficulty sorting the potential issues into a manageable compliance framework. No doubt, his concerns are not unique.
