Why Should You Attend

Today’s wage and hour environment has become one filled with peril for employers who do not understand how to deal with the Fair Labor Standards Act. The US Department of Labor has stepped up its enforcement efforts by adding investigators, forming an alliance with the American Bar Association in order to refer cases and creating a Smartphone application that allows your employees to report their time directly to the USDOL. Wage and hour lawsuits are costing employers into the multi-millions of dollars. Most companies have a basic understanding of how to deal with wages; however, often issues arise when dealing with supplemental pay.
