This month, the District of Columbia Department of Economic Services (DOES) provided clarification on certain aspects of the DC Wage Theft Prevention Act. The provision of the Act which instructs employers to provide detailed notices to employees with information about their wages holds that employers must provide new employees with these notices immediately, and existing employees must receive these notices by May 27, 2015.
Additionally, DOES announced its Zip Code Project, where teams of three investigators will drop in on DC businesses to ensure compliance with DC Wage and Hour laws.
