Is The Violation Willful?
In business and in life, mistakes happen. Many employers who violate wage and hour laws do so because they misunderstand the regulations or otherwise make an honest mistake. There can be employee misclassifications. However, if a violation is willful, a three-year “look back” can occur to find other violations, possibly resulting in the employee receiving double compensation for lost wages and attorneys’ fees.
