Why You Should Attend
Wage and hour compliance and litigation -- addressing minimum wage, overtime and overtime exemptions, employee classification, overtime rates of pay, and unpaid time work -- continue to be critically important to both employers and employees. Attorneys, as well as human resources and compliance personnel, must stay up to date on the latest legal developments; be informed about U.S. Department of Labor and key state initiatives and regulatory changes; and, understand the new wage and hour issues resulting from the reconfigured work arrangements in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Attorneys will obtain skills credit for learning how to calculate damages in a wage and hour case, and also will hear from experienced practitioners about strategies to secure or to defeat class and collective action litigation claims. Finally, test your understanding of which Rules of Professional Conduct may be implicated in wage and hour claims, and earn ethics credit while doing so.
