Avoid Meal Break Lawsuits
COMPLY WITH STATE MEAL BREAK LAWS
Wage and hour lawsuits related to meal breaks are on the upswing. With a number of state laws mandating ‘bona fide meal periods,’ it’s up to the employer to maintain compliance.
Track and Monitor Meal Break Compliance in Real Time
Meal break laws differ from state to state, making compliance especially difficult for employers operating across multiple locations. Without ongoing enforcement and monitoring, employers risk being held liable for meal break violations and resulting miscalculations of pay.
Blueforce provides increased visibility into meal break activity to help you avoid meal break lawsuits. Track and monitor meal break compliance in real time with built in labor analytics and customizable wage and hour compliance reports.
Get Real Time Notifications When a Meal Break Violation Occurs
Keeping tabs on meal break compliance helps you proactively manage violations before it’s too late. With Blueforce, you can set up real time alerts to notify you when violations occur, including when an employee:
- Misses a required meal break
- Takes too short of a meal break
- Takes too long of a meal break
- Does not take their meal break within a specified timeframe
Employ Automatic Meal Break Reminders and Safeguards for Auto Deductions
Many wage and hour lawsuits result from employees claiming they were not given their allotted meal break or working through their required meal break.
Blueforce helps you prevent employees from skipping required meal breaks. You can set automatic meal break reminders for employees and require them to confirm they took their required meal break to ensure your practices are in compliance with wage and hour laws.
Put an End to Shortened Meal Breaks
Employees who do not take their required meal break in full create one of the largest areas of wage and hour compliance exposure.
Blueforce helps you prevent shortened meal breaks by blocking an employee from clocking back in for a shift until the minimum meal break time period has elapsed.
