The number of wage and hour laws affecting employers is staggering, and with the Department of Labor stepping up its investigation and enforcement efforts, staying in compliance is critical to avoiding liability, including financial penalties and possible litigation.
As the definition of “work” has evolved over the years, gone are the days when calculating wages was a relatively simple task. These days, the DOL’s Wage and Hour Division is paying closer scrutiny to all aspects of an employee’s work life – whether your employees are punching a time clock during a 40-hour week, working overtime, telecommuting, being “on call,” donning and doffing special work equipment, traveling as part of their job, or a number of other scenarios.
During this one-hour webinar, employment attorneys Charlie Plumb and Paul Ross help employers gain a more thorough understanding of the DOL WHD’s role and authority, their new enforcement initiatives, and what employers can do to stay in compliance and out of trouble.
