The Fair Labor Standards Act has been around since 1938. After all these years, you’d think it would be clear and easy by now. But the fact is: It’s getting even harder to apply these laws to a quickly changing workplace. With the increasing scope of responsibilities employees are handling, the line between exempt vs. non-exempt classifications are more confusing now than they were five years ago. In fact, wage and hour laws cause more questions in the HR and payroll departments than practically anything else.
Finding clearcut answers for even the most organized and informed HR and Payroll professional is tough.
Congress and the courts are still battling it out over many of the finer points, and one decision seems to contradict the next. As a result, even the most conscientious and hardworking HR people become more confused. Make a mistake and you end up under investigation by the Department of Labor, or you get hit with a costly, time-consuming lawsuit from an employee.
The Wage and Hour Law Compliance seminar is built to help you meet your challenges.
We’ve developed this information-packed, one-day seminar to clarify the latest decisions and applications of the Fair Labor Standards Act. When it comes to something as important as employee wages, you know you can’t make assumptions and hope you’re right. You’ve got to have a solid working knowledge of the definitions and applications of this dynamic law. Anything less than that could spell trouble for your organization.
Even though this is must-attend training for all HR and Payroll Professionals, forget the idea of boring lectures.
Hearing or reading through the laws won’t do you much good if you don’t know how it all applies. You’re going to learn from court decisions and hear examples of cases that have cost other organizations plenty. You’ll find yourself participating in lively discussions … not only learning from your trainer but also from your peers. Bring plenty of questions along that day. You’ll leave with the solid answers you’ve been wanting.
