Expertise DescriptionI have over 35 years experience in federal labor law with expertise in wage and hour division laws: compliance audits, FLSA and FMLA seminars, consultation on wage and hour division investigations, Fair Labor Standards Act, Family and Medical Leave Act, and HR related services. I have over 10 years expert witness experience with consultations, depositions, and courtroom testimony.
Areas of Expertise
I frequently made deacons as to the employment relationship of workers both as an Investigator and as a Manager with the U.S. Department of Labor, Wage and Hour Division. These decisions involved all sorts of businesses which utilized “independent contractors” or so-called “1099” workers. I made these decisions in both non-agricultural and agricultural related businesses since it is a tactic many employers used to evade the requirements of the FLSA. As a consultant, I am also frequently requested to make such determinations to ensure employer compliance with the FLSA.
