The new version features an updated main screen design; added support for iOS 6, iPhone 5, iPad Mini, and fourth generation iPad; improved search capabilities; enhanced attorney profiles; expanded email functionality for sharing guide content with others; and easier access to additional wage and hour information on EBG’s website, including the Wage and Hour Division Investigation Checklist and other resources. The new version continues to be offered at no cost.
“The wage-hour app has proved to be an incredibly valuable tool for employers, answering many of their questions in seconds, while also providing them with a link to our wage-hour blog, where they can find developments in this ever important area of the law,” said Michael Kun, co-creator of the app and national Co-Chairperson of EBG’s Wage and Hour, Individual and Collective Actions practice group, in the Los Angeles office.
How Does the App Work?
Rather than searching through a variety of cumbersome resources to locate applicable wage and hour laws, users of the Wage & Hour Guide app can follow easy-to-navigate steps to find the answers to many of their questions, including citations of federal statutes, regulations, and guidelines, as well as those of California, the District of Columbia, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, New York, Texas, and Virginia. The following state guides were added after the initial launch of the app: Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New Jersey. To provide the best experience possible, the app enables users to download the guide to their iPhone or iPad device for reference anywhere, at any time, with or without a connection.
