QUESTION: I THOUGHT THAT ONLY THE COMPANY COULD BE PENALIZED FOR FAIR LABOR STANDARDS ACT VIOLATIONS?
ANSWER: WHEN A TEXAS ROPE COMPANY GOT TIED UP WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF LABOR, THE OWNER, PLANT MANAGER AND OFFICE MANAGER WENT TO JAIL!
Numerous federal laws include civil liability for individuals who fail to comply with the laws. Some federal laws even provide for individual criminal liability for company owners and managers.
Don’t let the boss rope you into breaking the law!
The U.S. Attorney’s office charged that High Performance Ropes of America, Inc.
NEGLIGENT HIRING, RETENTION AND SUPERVISION OF EMPLOYEES CAN COST YOUR COMPANY MONEY!
Employers are conditioned by discrimination lawsuits to avoid background checks and to avoid disciplining and firing workers. For example, so-called “ban the box” statutes forbidding including questions about past criminal convictions on employment applications have caused employers to be lax in hiring standards. Wrongful termination lawsuits have made employers wary of disciplining or firing underperformers.
Nevertheless, members of the public can and do sue companies whose workers commit crimes or cause other harm.
The employees stole from the customers???!!!
Employees of American District Telegraph Corporation (“ADT”) stole thousands of dollars worth of liquor from International Distributing Corporation (“liquor store”).

The Department of Labor (“DOL”) has proposed a new federal overtime rule that would raise the salary requirement for workers who qualify for the white-collar exemptions. The required salary would be raised from $23,660 to $35,308 per year ($679 a week).
If this feels like déjà vu, there is good reason. In 2016, the DOL approved a rule increasing the salary threshold to $47,476. That rule was blocked by a court in Texas. As a result of the Texas court’s 2016 ruling, the salary requirement remained at $23,660 per year ($455 per week).
