Clocking In to Work Out?
In the news recently are two stories regarding workforces taking legal action against “employers.” First, three minor league baseball players have sued Major League Baseball, commissioner Bud Selig, and 3 major league teams for violations of wage and overtime laws. Second, the New York Times reported, “A regional director of the National Labor Relations Board ruled Wednesday that a group of Northwestern football players were employees of the university and have the right to form a union and bargain collectively.” Of course, baseball ownership and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) are opposed to these actions.
Just in case the courts rule in favor of the players, Kronos has time and attendance solutions for organizations large and small to help comply with wage and overtime laws and to automate compliance with sometimes complex collective bargaining agreements. And we’re good sports…
Until then, it will be interesting to see how these versions of “Moneyball” turn out.
