Confronting Misclassification and Payroll Fraud: A Survey of State Labor Standards Enforcement Agencies


The idea for this report stemmed from an annual meeting of the Interstate Labor Standards Association (ILSA), an organization of state labor departments and other agencies that enforce labor standards. The idea was to question labor standards agencies about their approach to misclassification and understand more broadly what has been done in this area. The report details the results of a written survey of agencies in twenty-seven states and follow-up interviews with representatives from nine states. The purpose is to help state labor standards agencies learn what is being done in other states; to establish some baseline practices that states should adopt, based on respondents’ assessments; and to share innovative approaches that should be considered more broadly.
