1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Eastern
Companies can run into major problems if they aren’t up to date on the latest U.S. Department of Labor wage and hour rules. The Wage and Hour Division of the Department of Labor has an enormous impact on the interpretation and enforcement of the FLSA. On the state and local level, agencies play a large role in enforcing the wave of cutting-edge wage laws related to predictive scheduling, minimum wage, and sick time.
With many surprise visits and updates to the Department of Labor rules, it is important to align your company’s compliance goals with what we believe to be the current priorities of the Department of Labor and state and local agencies.
Join EPAY Systems and Seyfarth Shaw as we dive into practical advice that can be used to tackle a government wage and hour audit. Don’t wait until the government knocks on your company’s door before learning about the nuts and bolts of state and federal wage and hour agencies.
In this webinar, you’ll get relevant information including:
- An overview of roles and responsibilities of the Department of Labor
- An overview of State and local wage and hour agencies
- Government wage and hour audits to the DOL’s rules and opinion letters on a range of topics, including bonuses, time tracking and employee classification issues
