2019 Public Policy Luncheon: Stay Out of Trouble - Know Your Wage and Hour Rules!
For many business owners, keeping track of all the laws and regulations that apply to their business can be a challenge. Knowing where to go to find the answers can be equaling challenging. This training session conducted by the U.S. Department of Labor/Wage-Hour Division will help ease the pain! At this dual-purpose training session, attendees will get a ‘refresher’ on the basics of the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act including minimum wage, overtime, recordkeeping and child labor. Attendees will also receive information on ‘hot-button’ issues, how to spot red flags and best practices on how to achieve and maintain compliance with federal wage and hour laws.
Topics covered will include:
- What are the most common wage and hour violations?
- In what areas of wage and hour law have employers expressed the most uncertainty?
- When must break time be paid?
- When should training time be paid?
- Which employees are exempt from overtime?
- How late can minors work?
