Understanding the Wage and Hour Laws
Tuesday, July 8, 2014
2:00 p.m. ET / 11:00 a.m. PT
In recent years, employers have paid millions of dollars in back pay to workers who have been classified incorrectly or paid for fewer hours than they should have been. Both federal and state laws apply to employers, and some of the requirements are complicated. This 90-minute intermediate level webinar is designed to help you stay on top of your obligations under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
This webinar will cover:
- Which workers these laws apply to
- Which employees are entitled to overtime, and proposed changes in those rules
- Issues related to mobile devices
- Calculating overtime
- Managing unauthorized overtime
- Minimum wage issues, especially for employers with employees in multiple states
- Meal and rest periods
