Why You Should Attend
Wage and hour litigation over minimum wage and overtime exemptions, employee classification, overtime rates of pay, and unpaid time worked remains steady in courts and is becoming increasingly common in the arbitration forum. Attorneys, as well as human resources and compliance personnel must stay up to date on the latest legal developments, be informed about Department of Labor initiatives and regulatory changes, and be aware of issues arising in independent contractor and joint employment relationships. Attorneys will obtain skills credit for learning how to calculate damages in a wage and hour case, and will also hear from experienced practitioners about common wage and hour mistakes employers make and how to effectively remedy them. Finally, test your knowledge of which Rules of Professional Conduct may be implicated in wage and hour cases, and earn ethics credit while doing so.
