Based on the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) Wage and Hour Division’s (WHD) 2012 budget, employers can expect an increase in wage and hour enforcement and litigation. The WHD’s budget increased by more than $15 million in 2012, and the agency will add 107 new investigators this year. The WHD made only one cut to its budget in 2012: it decreased the budget of Employer Compliance Assistance and Call Center by $2 million and eliminated 12 of its employees.
