Wage and Hour Law: Avoidance of Wage Theft Litigation

Ensure wage and hour compliance and avoid wage theft.

Federal and state wage and hour laws are nuanced and exacting, and thus require expertise to avoid wage theft litigation. With the ever increasing surge in federal and state department of labor investigations, as well as lawsuits filed by the private plaintiff's bar, it is critical that employers maintain lawful wage and hour policies and practices. This training will assist employers in understanding how to prevent various forms of wage theft with federal and state wage and hour laws, and how to achieve best practices for implementing company policies in line with current regulations. This training is important for any employer, large or small, to ensure that its wage and hour practices do not run afoul of the law.
