Hot Wage and Hour Issues: Overtime Concerns With Remote Access and Mobile Devices
|Date / Time:
Employees and their counsel continue to pursue class action claims for off-the-clock work and unpaid overtime wages at a fever pitch.
Thousands of wage and hour class actions asserting violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act or parallel state laws are filed each year and the costs of defending these matters and the damages claimed and paid, whether through trial or settlement, are staggering.
The key to avoiding these claims is strict compliance with the law; however, the laws are antiquated and do not fit well with technological advances. Although allowing employees remote access to computer systems and the use of mobile devices may provide for smoother business operations, this technology presents new challenges as to when employees are engaged in work, how to track and pay for that time, and how to control when such activities occur.
This webinar will help you understand the nature of these issues and the newest arguments and claims to overtime advanced by plaintiffs' counsel. It will also explain how you can structure your workplace policies and work environment to minimize the likelihood and success of these claims.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
