Overview:

This webinar concentrates on Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requirements for wage and hour law that must be followed in the payroll department. Topics include calculating overtime correctly, workweek and workday definitions, travel time, minimum wage, and posting requirements. But there are more requirements than just the federal that payroll must handle.

The state can have its own set up requirements for the same areas as listed above. In addition, there are many areas of wage and hour law that the FLSA does not even address but yet is required on the state level. This webinar examines the state requirements in the areas of meal and rest periods, payday statements (paystubs), posting requirements, how often an employee must be paid and by what method, and paying terminated employees.

Why should you attend: The Department of Labor added 200 more auditors to handle the increased volume in their investigations of Wage and Hour violations under the previous Secretary of Labor and no one knows yet how many more will be added by the incoming Secretary. Over the past four years stepped up audits have resulted in millions of dollars in back wage payments as well as penalties, fines and interest. Additionally, civil lawsuits for Wage and Hour violations are always a threat to business and are also on the rise. This lecture focuses on how to comply with Federal and State requirements under wage and hour law to ensure compliance that will help to avoid these audits and lawsuits.
