Avoiding timekeeping fraud: The private sector

Donald Murano ( is General Counsel, and Kenneth Norris ( is Attorney for Fluor-BWXT Portsmouth LLC in Piketon, Ohio, USA.

This is part one of a two-part series exploring timekeeping in the private and public sectors.

Vigilant timekeeping practices ensure that the appropriate daily wage is paid for an accurate account of hours spent by workers on the job. If that is not the case, either employees are underpaid in violation of wage-and-hour laws (or collective bargaining agreements), or employers are not maximizing their return on wages paid.

This first part of a two-part series is devoted to the private sector employer. Part two in the next issue of CEP Magazine will address the public sector employer (essentially government contractors providing services).
