A worrisome trend for businesses is the explosive growth of wage and hour lawsuits. The Department of Labor reports that it receives nearly 25,000 wage- and hour related complaints per year, and the number of lawsuits brought against companies under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) continues to soar — wage and hour lawsuits against companies for violations of the FLSA have increased 456% since 1995. These lawsuits are not only time-consuming for management and extremely disruptive to the daily work of the business, but they are expensive to defend and result in the payment of significant settlements.

Even a small wage and hour violation can result in large damages when the claim is brought on behalf of all similarly-situated employees (a class action lawsuit). It is vital for a business to review its wage and hour policies periodically.

This 60-minute Teleseminar will cover the following:

  • Independent Contractor versus Employee
  • Overtime Exemptions/White Collar Exemptions
  • Off The Clock Work Time
  • Preparatory Time, Stand-By and On-Call Time
  • Record Keeping Requirements
