Complying With Washington's Wage and Hour Laws

Make sure you are in compliance with Washington's wage and hour laws.

Federal and state wage and hour laws are complex, change constantly, and contain traps for unwary employers. Many companies assume that they are paying their employees correctly, but are not. They fail to correctly calculate overtime, do not comply with break regulations, make improper pay deductions, or believe they can reduce overhead by simply classifying workers as independent contractors. This topic helps the persons responsible within their company for complying with wage and hour regulations to understand and identify these wage and hour 'traps' that can trip up any employer - how to correctly classify employees, calculate overtime pay, and pay employees for breaks, make deductions, and avoid liability for pre-shift or post-shift work. Failing to comply with federal and state wage and hour laws is an all-too-common and costly mistake made by many employers. It has led to class action claims against employers, costing them many thousands or millions of dollars. This information is critical for employers so that they can ensure that their pay practices meet federal and state wage and hour laws.
