Webinar – Current Developments in Federal and State Wage and Hour Law

Wage and hour claims remain steady in the courts and in arbitration.  As too many employers have learned, they can be very time consuming and, even worse, costly.  To help avoid falling victim to these claims, employers must keep up-to-date on the latest legal developments, be informed about the status of DOL regulations, and know about important new developments and nuances of paying employees correctly under many varying state laws.

Please join us for this timely webinar as we review the most recent court decisions, government enforcement activity, and offer tips for how employers can proactively prevent (or at least mitigate) wage and hour disputes.  Topics will include:

  • Use of unpaid interns
  • Ban the Box
  • Salary History
  • Tip pooling
  • Self-audits and other regulatory initiatives

The Webinar will begin at 2:00 p.m. (EDT) and end at 3:00 p.m.

As always, there is no charge for our Webinar. We hope you will join us!
