Earned Wage Access Programs from an Employer’s Perspective
Today’s episode features a discussion about earned wage access programs. We’ll discuss why the push for on-demand payroll technology has picked-up during the COVID-19 pandemic and outline issues from an employer’s viewpoint as it relates to state wage & hour laws, liabilities, and potential lawsuits.
The discussion features Meredith Dante, a partner who regularly advises clients in a broad variety of employment law matters including whistleblower complaints and retaliation and James Kim, a partner in the firm’s Consumer Financial Practices Group and co-leader of the firm’s Fintech and Payments Team, who advises clients on earned wages access programs. Joining Meredith and James is Anu Thomas, an associate that focuses on counseling employers on labor and employment issues.
