Current National Legislative Activity
Wage Theft Prevention Act H.R. 3303 - This Legislation would suspend the statue of limitations while the DOL (Department of Labor) investigated the alleged infraction. This prevents workers from having their case dismissed through no fault of their own. The present statute requires that the duration of the DOL investigation be included in the two year statute of limitation. After the two years, any unresolved cases are dismissed.
