Interactive HR Hero Audio Conference Overcoming the 8 Toughest Wage & Hour Problems: How to Avoid DOL’s Ramped-up Enforcement

50% DiscountThere are now more wage & hour class actions pending in U.S. courts than ANY other type of lawsuit. More than $185 million in back wages were collected in 2008. And with the DOL hiring 250 additional investigators to look for wage violations, you can ill-afford to make pay policy blunders.

Learn how to overcome the eight most common wage & hour traps and get the very latest on new ramped-up enforcement efforts from the federal government by participating in this all-new live event.

     10am to 11:30am Central
      9am to 10:30am Mountain

In just 90 minutes, experienced employment law attorneys will show you how to overcome nettlesome wage and hour issues, including:

  • Weather closings – Must you pay employees when your workplace is closed for inclement weather or for another unforeseen reason?
  • Travel time – When do you have to pay employees for travel time?
  • Docking pay – Can you dock employees’ pay if they are out of leave time but get sick and require time off?
  • Bonuses and overtime – When does a bonus affect how you have to calculate an employee’s overtime rate?
  • And 4 other issues that can invite the DOL’s wrath…
