Description:

The laws, rules, and regulations governing compensable hours worked for nonexempt employees are intricate and exacting, and in many ways are incongruent with the realities of the 2016 workplace.

Yet, an employer's failure to comply with these laws can result in costly litigation and significant business disruption.

Because the number of wage-hour lawsuits continues to increase, it is important to stay abreast of legal developments in this area.

Review recent case law developments that will help you identify and prevent liabilities resulting from off-the-clock claims. Receive guidance regarding issues such as when the workday begins, off-duty use of cell phones, meal and rest break issues, and other activities that may constitute compensable hours worked. Review proposed strategies for defending off the clock claims, should a lawsuit arise.

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.

The live 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.
