Wage and Hour Compliance: Session One - The Impact
Alexander J. Passantino, Esq., of Seyfarth Shaw LLP
About this talk
Is your organization at risk? At both the state and local levels, enforcement of wage and hour laws has increased dramatically during the past 18 months. In fact, the federal government has added hundreds of new investigators to focus on FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act) issues. Alleged misclassification of employees, as well as government enforcement litigation, is widespread throughout today’s modern workforce. Many uninformed employers will face significant financial exposure and risk if they continue heading down this path. Are you informed on this critical issue? Are your compliance programs state-of-the-art?
Part one of the two-part series, Session One - The Impact, will give you an introduction to FLSA, landmark cases, class actions, settlements, cost to employers, and examples of the difficulty in interpreting the law.
