Answers to Top 10 Common Payroll Questions

OnDemand Webinar (89 minutes)

The United States Department of Labor estimates that over 70% of employers are not in compliance with the FLSA.

When factoring in variations in state laws, the estimate of noncompliant employers increases substantially. Wage and hour claims continue to exceed equal employment opportunity claims. On both the individual claim and class action scale, noncompliance can lead to major financial penalties and mandatory fee-shifting. This topic will focus on the most common wage and hour issues facing employers. The material will provide both legal and practical guidance for recognizing and rectifying these issues. Topics to be covered include proper classification of the workforce as overtime exempt or nonexempt, calculating the overtime rate, and identifying what are considered to be hours worked. The material will also review recent changes to federal and state laws regarding minimum wage and overtime exemption salary thresholds and what those changes mean for your business.
