Deputy supports wage and hour labor compliance

Meal and rest break compliance with Deputy

Meal and rest break compliance software

Many states have strict rules for scheduling and recording breaks. States like California require premium pay for missed breaks — with high penalties for breaches. 

Deputy can help employers schedule the right breaks, flag any that are missed, record agreement from employees if they waive their break, and flag on timesheets when missed break premium pay is owed.

Fair Workweek compliance with Deputy

Fair workweek compliance

Fair workweek laws have landed in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, and a growing list of cities and states across the U.S. Obligations include advance notice of schedules and premium pay for late changes. 

Deputy makes it simple to manage many fair workweek rules, create a record of compliance, and build a thriving workplace with fair, equitable schedules for your team.

Compliance with FLSA

Compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act

  • Overtime

    Most nonexempt employees get paid at least 1.5x their regular rate for working over 40 hours in a week. Deputy can flag overtime hours on employee timesheets and even help you find staff who are available to work the shift without incurring overtime pay.

  • Child labor laws

    If you have employees under the age of 18, state and federal child labor laws may place restrictions on the days, times, and number of hours they can work in order to protect their well-being. Deputy can help you manage these requirements with simple scheduling guardrails.

Compliance with other federal, state, and local laws

  • Premium pay

    Premium pay is state-specific, including California's premiums for split shifts or New York’s spread of hours premium pay. Deputy’s pay rule library can simplify compliance with these requirements by flagging hours that should incur premium pay on employee timesheets.

  • Leave law compliance

    Leave laws can be complicated. Depending on the rules that apply to your business, your employees may be entitled to many different types of leave. Deputy offers a leave engine that enables you to set up leave rules for your team in just a few clicks.

  • Occupational Safety and Health Administration

    Employers must create a safe workplace that complies with the OSH Act and OSHA standards as well as various state and local regulations. Use Deputy to publish workplace health and safety alerts, and ensure staff have reviewed workplace safety policies.
