FLSA Self-Audit Check-Up: How To Analyze Your Wage And Hour Practices
How's your FLSA compliance health? Could a policy or a practice be quietly laying the groundwork for an expensive run-in with an aggressive plaintiff attorney or agency enforcement watchdog? If you don’t know for sure, now is the time to self-examine your processes.
The Wage and Hour Division will soon propose rules to revise its longstanding white-collar overtime exemption regulations. In the meantime, it’s stepping up enforcement to identify employers in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) with respect to minimum wage and overtime calculations. Plus, it currently has laser focus on independent contractor classifications.
Don’t wait for a WHD audit to learn if your wage and hour policies or practices are in violation.
Join us to test your organization’s FLSA compliance status. A skilled labor and employment attorney will teach you where the most costly compliance mistakes lie. He will also provide practical strategies for evaluating whether your current wage and hour practices have a legally clean bill of health.
Taking a proactive approach to examining your FLSA practices and correcting deficient areas can go a long way toward avoiding costly penalties and fines, as well as collective action lawsuits, and this event is designed to give you tips and strategies for ensuring a successful self audit of your wage and hour practices.
