The Reality. The tightening employment market has led to an increase in fraud in the workplace, and an increase in employment-related cases against employers.  With unemployment levels remaining at the 9.5-9.8% range in Q4 of 2012, employers can expect  a steady increase in wage and hour claims. The uncertainty of changes in the Internal Revenue Code and the likelihood of an increase in payroll tax suggests this claim level will remain high.

The current economic pressures have affected staffing decisions nationwide. With smaller staff and reduced salaries, there are fewer inherent controls and less oversight. This creates exposure to misappropriation by employees, or frivolous wage and hour claims.
