There’s a reason why states like New York and California have the ‘Wage Theft Prevention Act’ as part of the employee onboarding process. At the end of the day you can’t prevent an owner from doing something illegal, but you can put steps in place to make sure that the New Hire and Employer are on the same page from Day One.

A Papa John’s owner tried to make a buck off his employees’ backs, and now he’s paying big time. Abdul Jamil Khokhar, who owns nine of the chain’s restaurants in the NYC area along with BMY Foods, has pleaded guilty to not paying the correct minimum wage when workers put in overtime, Fortune reports. He and BMY were also accused of filing false business records to make it appear as if other (i.e., fake) employees were actually working those extra hours so he wouldn’t get nabbed for not paying the overtime, per a press release. The AP notes that about 300 current and ex-employees were affected. “Wage theft is a crime, and a Papa John’s franchisee is now going to jail for cheating his employees and trying to cover it up,” state AG Eric Schneiderman says. “My office will do everything in its power to … make sure that all employers—including fast food restaurants—follow the law.”
Big payroll is no stranger to paperwork.
[They know their customers hate it.]
That’s exactly the point.
If a client considers switching to a more local, attentive payroll provider, Big Payroll reminds them of just how expensive the competition’s paperwork makes the process.
Without the benefit of a national marketing campaign, independent payroll providers can’t always adopt the same systems the big names have in place to make customer onboarding fast and affordable.
