A February 8 letter from the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) (click link below) reminds municipalities of common Fair Labor Standards Act violations to avoid. It points to compliance information and a proactive self-audit opportunity. It further describes available assistance and appropriate remedial action when errors are discovered. Of course, bear in mind that the $7.50 federal minimum wage the DOL alludes to is superseded by Vermont’s 2019 minimum wage of $10.78.
