Product Description

Ensure Compliance with Wage and Hour Laws Especially When Federal and State Laws Differ

The Department of Labor takes their investigations of Wage and Hour violations very seriously! From FY2009 to FY2015, agency-initiated investigations have increased 21 percent. They don’t often come away empty handed either. In FY2015 alone, 79 percent of those agency-initiated cases resulted in costly violations in excess of $246 million!

Additionally, civil lawsuits for Wage and Hour violations are always a threat to business. Violations of Wage and Hour laws have generated astronomical financial judgements against employers. Penalties have been so severe that they have shaken the financial foundations of some of the world’s most successful companies.

By knowing and understanding Wage and Hour requirements, you can help protect your company from what could be a major financial calamity. This includes not only how to do the basic math of calculating overtime but what hours must be paid for, what to do when state and federal law differ, how to handle travel pay and what exactly is a workweek. This session by expert speaker Vicki M. Lambert will focus on how to comply with Federal and state wage and hour requirements as well as some local regulations that have been instituted recently.
