Paul DeCamp, Member of the Firm in the Employment, Labor & Workforce Management practice, in the firm’s Washington, DC office, was cited in HR Dive, in “74 Employers Have Used DOL’s New Self-Reporting Program, Paying Out $4M,” by Jennifer Carsen.

Following is an excerpt:

DOL is proclaiming PAID a success, but is it a good deal for employers? …

… Paul DeCamp of Epstein Becker Green, who also served as WHD administrator under Bush, previously told HR Dive that the program presented a lot of risk to employers, due to the chances of follow-on state enforcement action or private litigation. …

Whether they use PAID or not, employers are well-advised to review their practices for FLSA compliance (although there are a few factors to consider before doing so). Now is a particularly good time for employers to review their pay practices, given the release of the long-awaited final rule on overtime changes.
