Pay Correctly Now or Pay More Later: All You Need to Know About Wage and Hour Laws

Posted in Labor Law, New Legislation and Regulations, Wage & Hour

Summary of Program:

Wage and hour lawsuits and claims filed with the Department of Labor and the California Labor Commissioner continue to plague California employers. Often employers are sued because of technical violations that occur simply because the employer is unaware of its legal obligations. Other times, employers make the mistake of treating an employee as exempt from Wage Orders and Labor Code laws, when in fact the employee does not qualify.

This seminar will help employers understand and comply with wage and hour laws in California.  In addition, this seminar will help employers, HR professionals, supervisors, and payroll managers gain a more thorough understanding of the various exemptions available under California law and learn how to conduct a legally strong exemption analysis.
