LexisNexis® presents a Complimentary CLE Accredited Webinar entitled Protecting Your Company…Wage & Hour Law 2013! on Wednesday, January 16, 2013 from 2:00 pm - 3:35 pm Eastern.
Wage and hour litigation is the fastest growing category within employment law today. During the years 2003-2006 there were about 4,000 FLSA lawsuits filed. Now they are being filed at a rate of over 7,000 a year. A Harris Interactive survey says that half of U.S. workers believe their employers are violating overtime laws. Within different industries there is fertile ground for violations due to an "everybody else does it."
Join this complimentary CLE Webinar to hear industry experts discuss and take your questions on:
- Setting the stage: the Fair Labor Standards Act
- IRS definitions of "employee" and "independent contractor"
- Preparing for wage and hour audits and "sweeps"
- Lessons from recent high-profile cases
- What companies do (and shouldn't do) to circumvent regulations
- The future of the employees' right to know
- Joint employment allegations
- An effective record keeping program
- Overtime reduction efforts
- Especially vulnerable industries
- Department of Labor settlement terms
Now that the presidential election is behind us, experts anticipate even greater government scrutiny cast upon employers' handling of wages and hours. Ensure you hear the latest from this panel of experts!
