Now an iPhone App for Wage and Hour Litigation

This is clearly a first for this blog. A link to the apple app store.

But when the Department of Labor releases an app for iPhone, iPod and iPad with this description:
... a timesheet to help employees independently track the hours they work and determine the wages they are owed. .... This new technology is significant because, instead of relying on employer's records, workers can now keep their own records. This information could prove invaluable during a Wage and Hour Division investigation when an employer has failed to maintain accurate employment records.
DOL-Timesheet for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store, it sounds blog worthy to me.

Technology, as employers have found with email, can be a two-edged sword. It will be interesting to see how this one plays out down the line.

A hat tip to my Indianapolis colleague, Christopher Murray, for pointing this out.
