The Department of Labor takes their investigations of Wage and Hour violations very seriously! From FY2009 to FY2015, agency-initiated investigations have increased 21 percent. They don’t often come away empty handed either. In FY2015 alone, 79 percent of those agency-initiated cases resulted in costly violations in excess of $246 million!
