Municipal Compliance with Federal Overtime Requirements

The US Department of Labor Wage & Hour Division reports incomplete municipal compliance with FLSA section 7 overtime requirements. Municipalities can self-audit for compliance using the Payroll Audit Independent Determination (PAID) program.

We are providing this information to assist you in determining whether your municipality complies with Federal overtime pay requirements. The US Department of Labor Wage & Hour Division advised the League many municipal governments are not complying with FLSA section 7 overtime requirements. This involves paying for compensatory time and paying for all hours worked.

To proactively avoid litigation, municipalities can self-audit for compliance using the Payroll Audit Independent Determination (PAID) program. Using this program you can self-audit and inform USDOL of any violations you uncover.  They will then work with you in good faith to correct noncompliance and resolve potential violations without litigation.

For questions or to discuss contact USDOL Community Outreach and Resource Planning Specialist Shavonne Person at 609-895-8525
