Datamatics Management Services, Inc. Offers Staggering Statistics That Show How Vulnerable Employers Are to Wage and Hour Judgments

What You Don't Know About Time and Attendance Could Cost You a Fortune.

Fords, NJ, January 26, 2009 --( Datamatics Management Services, Inc., a leading developer of labor management applications, wants to make you aware of the Department of Labor Statistics stating that employment lawsuits rose over 2000% in the last decade. The average settlement was $200,000; and fines from the Department of Labor for incorrect payments of overtime have amounted to over $1 billion in back pay awards. You have a greater risk of being sued by one of your employees for employment practices than you do for an on-the-job injury.

Clearly, the statistics are staggering. A major reason for the success of employee lawsuits is poor record keeping and the inability to access historical data. If you were hit with a labor legal battle how quickly would you be able to get the necessary data to mount a defense and how accurate would that data be? It is critical not only to maintain, but also have quick access to employee time and attendance records that are crucial to any defense against wage and hour complaints.

Ken Eska of Datamatics Management Services, Inc., a leading developer of labor management applications, states that automating workforce management can help defend against employee lawsuits. “By accurately tracking employee time and attendance and providing instant access to historical data, you will no longer need to spend countless hours searching through thousands of time records manually to find the exact data necessary for your defense”, says Ken.
