Wage & Hour Law

Misclassified employees … unpaid off-the-clock work … overtime mistakes … is your company vulnerable?

More than 70% of employers are currently violating the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) in one way or another, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. It's best to identify your mistakes BEFORE a government agency or employee lawsuit does it for you!

On Friday, September 20, discover if you're at risk – and what to do about it – with our updated webinar, Wage & Hour Law. Attorney Anniken Davenport, who literally wrote the book on wage-and-hour compliance, offers practical, step-by-step compliance advice for your organization.

Wage-and-hour law is facing some of its biggest changes in a generation.

While President Trump's DOL has changed some of its enforcement priorities, wage-and-hour violations have actually INCREASED. In 2018, the DOL collected a record $304 million in wages owed to workers and the agency increased the employer penalties for individual FLSA violations. State labor agencies are also stepping up their enforcement.

Plus, what's happening with the big federal changes to overtime law? The Department of Labor sent its long-awaited white-collar overtime rule to the White House for a final review. If enacted, the rule would raise the minimum overtime salary threshold by 50% starting Jan. 1, 2020. And that could require big changes to your comp and bonus plans.

Learn how to master the ins and outs of complex wage-and-hour laws. You'll discover:

  • How to correctly classify employees as either nonexempt (eligible for overtime) or exempt (not eligible). We walk you through how to classify employees accurately and with minimal stress.
  • When you must pay hourly workers for travel time, on-call hours, meal breaks and training periods.
  • How to control after-hours work in the era of smartphones and email.
  • Whether now is a good time to restructure your incentive bonus payments.
  • Why you should review your telecommute rules – especially if you've recently converted exempt employees to hourly.
  • When and how to pay your interns, based on new DOL and court rulings.
  • What to do if DOL or ICE agents show up and demand your pay records.
  • When the law allows you to dock the pay of salaried employees.
  • The single most effective way to discipline employees who work unauthorized overtime.
  • What to do if you've been misclassifying employees as exempt and need to fix the problem.
  • DOL opinion letters are back! Learn what's in them and how to ask for one.
  • What the Trump administration is planning when it comes to FLSA changes and wage-and-hour enforcement.

Plus, you'll be able to ask your specific pay-related question to a true expert in wage-and-hour law.
