Wage And Hour Audits: Commonsense Tips For Spotting And Fixing Problems Before A WHD Visit
|Date / Time:
The DOL estimates that nearly 70 percent of employers are not in compliance with FLSA.
According to NERA Economic Consulting, last year's wage and hour settlements totaled a whopping $467 million, with companies on average paying out $4.8 million to resolve Fair Labor Standards Act claims - up $200,000 over what was paid to settle claims in 2011.
NERA also reported that overtime claims were the most prevalent in 2012, accounting for staggering 40 percent of the allegations it examined in its recent study.

|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.
