Are you certain that you are in compliance with the latest FLSA rules and guidelines? In this practical webinar, you will investigate recent developments in wage and hour law, the legal risks of misclassifying employees, and strategies for ensuring FLSA compliance in the remote workplace.
The US Department of Labor Wage & Hour Division oversees federal labor laws. Failure to comply with Wage & Hour laws may result in the employer paying the employee back wages, damages, penalties, attorney fees and court costs, plus the prospect of civil and criminal penalties from federal and/or state governments. Therefore, Wage & Hour compliance is of the utmost importance.
This webinar will explore several of the most common FLSA mistakes made by employers today and will look at special issues raised by current changes in the law, including the proposed changes to the regulations governing exempt status for employees.
Learn how to avoid those FLSA alligator bites!
Why you should Attend
The FLSA is one of those laws that can trip managers up big time. It is also one of those laws that managers rarely think about or focus on. What are the most common violations that cause problems for supervisors and managers, and how can they be avoided?
Civil lawsuits for Wage and Hour violations are always a threat to business. Violations of the Federal Labor Standards Act (FLSA) can result in astronomical financial judgements against employers. By understanding the provisions of the FLSA, you can protect your company from major financial consequences.
