New York, NY (April 17, 2018) – Epstein Becker Green (EBG) has released a new version of its popular Wage & Hour Guide for Employers app, available without charge for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices.

In addition to providing summaries of federal and state wage and hour laws and regulations, the new version of the app includes updates to minimum wage and tipped employee rates.

First released in February 2012—among the first legal reference apps of its kind—the app has continued to evolve and has served as a mobile reference tool for thousands of users around the world. Rather than search through a variety of resources to find the applicable law, users can follow this easy-to-navigate app to find the answers to many of their questions, including citations to statutes, regulations, and guidelines.

“We unveiled the original version of the app in 2012, and, over the past six years, the feedback we have received from those using the app has been tremendous,” said Michael Kun, Co-Chair of EBG’s national Wage and Hour group and one of the app’s designers. “As employers, human resource professionals, and in-house counsel grapple with changing wage and hour laws and regulations, we are pleased to continue to offer this useful mobile resource, allowing users to quickly access important information and answer questions in minutes.”

“There has been no shortage of recent wage and hour claims filed by employees under the Fair Labor Standards Act, making compliance for employers throughout all industries more important than ever,” said Paul DeCamp, Co-Chair of EBG’s national Wage and Hour group and a former Administrator of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division. “The app is a powerful tool that companies can use to comply with laws and regulations and to help avoid government agency investigations and class action litigation.”

Key features of the app include:

  • Summaries of wage and hour laws and regulations, including 53 jurisdictions (federal, all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico)
  • Updates for 2018, including changes to minimum wage and tipped employee rates
  • Available without charge for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices
  • Quick access to, and a direct feed of, EBG’s award-winning Wage and Hour Defense Blog, which provides up-to-date commentary on wage and hour developments
  • Social media feeds from Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and YouTube
  • Quick links to EBG’s attorneys and practices—and more!

The app’s content was prepared by attorneys from EBG’s national Wage and Hour group, including Julie Badel, Carol Faherty, Marc-Joseph Gansah, Daniel Green, Nancy Gunzenhauser Popper, Adriana S. Kosovych, Michael Kun, Jeffrey Landes, Jennifer Nutter, Greta Ravitsky, Judah L. Rosenblatt, Jeffrey Ruzal, Dean Singewald, Peter Stein, Brian Steinbach, Peter Steinmeyer, Kevin Sullivan, and Michael Thompson, with assistance from law clerk Travis Wong.

NOTE: The 2018 edition of the app—available for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices—replaces the 2012 and 2014 editions, which have been retired. Previous users, please download the new version. E-mail us with questions and feedback.
