DOL Halts "PAID" Program That Facilitated Supervised Settlements

On January 29, 2021, the Labor Department' s Wage and Hour Division announced that it was terminating the Payroll Audit Independent Determination program, a program that it started in 2018 to help facilitate employer payments of backpay to employees when an employer discovered that it may have inadvertently violated the Fair Labor Standards Act.
