Complex Wage and Hour Issues and Calculations

Understand the intricacies of wage and hour laws and practical steps to prevent costly litigation and government audits.

Employers across the nation have had to grapple with an ever-changing employment landscape over the last year, forcing them to make changes to job duties, pay rates, and classifications to accommodate an unpredictable economy. Whether it's having nonexempt employees work from home, modifying employee responsibilities, or implementing salary increases or bonus pay for frontline workers, employers do not always consider the implications of these changes and how they may impact an employer's obligation to comply with wage and hour laws. This topic will help individuals responsible for wage and hour compliance to understand the intricacies of wage and hour laws applicable to exempt and nonexempt employees and provides employers with practical steps to prevent costly litigation and government audits. The material will also explain the method of calculating complex wage and hour compensation and determining what constitutes compensable time. This information will help employers ensure their policies and practices comply with the most up-to-date federal and state wage and hour laws.
