Wage and hour issues continue to be an area of concern for employers, particularly as employers face changes relating to overtime rules for white collar workers and the classification of independent contractors. The number of wage and hour claims under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and state laws continues to rise, both due to audits by the USDOL and class and collective actions with high-dollar exposure. When employers are found to have run afoul of wage and hour laws, it can be very costly.
This program exposes and explains common mistakes and traps that most often plague employers, together with how to adapt policies and practices to the latest changes in wage and hour laws to avoid liability. The USDOL appreciates efforts by employers to remain educated in the complexities of wage and hour laws, and this program provides exactly that kind of training—so that employers can bring their pay practices into line with the law and reduce the risks of litigation.
