Wage and hour lawsuits and complaints are at an all-time high as a result of more aggressive enforcement efforts by the Department of Labor and increased awareness of the Fair Labor Standards Act by employees. While speaking at the Tulsa Area Employer Council’s March 2016 meeting, McAfee & Taft labor and employment attorneys Charlie Plumb and Anna Lukeman give an overview of current FLSA trends and discuss steps that employers should take to avoid wage and hour violations. Topics include:

  • Why collective actions are on the rise
  • New proposed overtime regulations affecting white collar exemptions
  • Independent contractor misclassification issues
  • FLSA impact on joint employers
  • Protecting against off-the-clock liability
  • How to conduct a self-audit
