Understanding the Fair Labor Standards Act

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Howard Cole will present a timely seminar with emerging strategies for handling critical wage and hour issues, ensuring compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act and evaluating potential compensation claims. The seminar will include detailed discussion of the following subjects: Fair Labor Standards Act coverage and exemptions, including proper classification of employees, overtime eligibility, piece work compensation, risks of misclassification; independent contractor classification; travel time or preparatory/concluding time; timekeeping policies and procedures; training and prevention; complaint mechanisms; and audit protocol. 

The last ten years have seen a dramatic increase in the number of claims involving the Fair Labor Standards Act and state wage and hour laws. The courts have become cluttered with wage and hour lawsuits.  Perhaps even more challenging has been the exponential increase of class action lawsuits by plaintiffs' lawyers who utilize wage and hour lawsuits as their new arena to leverage multimillion-dollar settlements.  Learn about the current trends in wage and hour litigation and, about the trends for 2014 and beyond.

The following topics will be discussed:

  • Common Mistakes That Lead to FLSA Litigation and DOL Investigations
  • Overview of Minimum Wage Requirements
  • Overview of Overtime Regulations
  • Independent Contractor Determinations 
  • Preventative Measures to Avoid FLSA Liability
  • Compliance with the FLSA and state requirements
