Background

San Francisco

Minimum wage laws are complex. Each state, county, and city could have different laws with unique criteria. A large staffing company needed us to make sure they were complying with every national regulation.

What we did

Problem within a problem

There’s no central place for all minimum wage laws. And worse, they change. So our research had to be done manually and carefully. For example, minimum wage could be higher or lower than the federal level, or not even set at all.

  • Accurate law requirements
  • New gather and documenting processes

A scalable, inclusive structure

Since laws change, our system needed to be flexible. Some changes are planned, some aren’t. Some simple, others not. Our infrastructure needed to handle all current and future scenarios. Also, the team needed to be trained on new technologies to make the new system more accessible.

  • Extensible platform
  • Upskilled client tea

Exhaustive testing

Especially since dealing with national regulations, we had to test two big things: Was our whole automated concept flawless, and were individual states working?

  • Validated system and set of rules
