Paul DeCamp, Member of the Firm in the Employment, Labor & Workforce Management practice, in the firm’s Washington, DC office, was cited in SHRM.org, in “Self-Audit in Response to DOL PAID Pilot Program,” by Allen Smith.Following is an excerpt:More employers are likely to self-audit their pay practices and correct errors as a result of the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL’s) new pilot program, the Payroll Audit Independent Determination (PAID) program, employment attorneys say. …Under the FLSA, employees cannot waive their right to sue unless the DOL or court approves the settlement. The PAID program provides employers with a mechanism to obtain such a DOL settlement. …The PAID program is good for employees too, said Paul DeCamp, an attorney with Epstein Becker Green in Washington, D.C., and a former administrator of the Wage and Hour Division. When a worker accepts back pay under the program, the employee is made whole much faster than is typically the case in litigation and doesn’t have to give a share to a lawyer, he noted. …Employers may have to pay employees an additional sum beyond what was negotiated through the PAID program to resolve state claims, DeCamp noted.
