Administering Final Pay: What Are Your Rights and Obligations When the Employment Relationship Ends?
|Date / Time:
Whether it's an unexpected resignation or an unplanned, immediate termination, the clock is ticking on your employee's final paycheck. If you delay or get it wrong, you could face strict penalties and even a wage and hour class action.
Many plaintiffs’ attorneys have built extremely successful practices that pursue employers for wage and hour violations related to termination pay. Don’t line their pockets by making common gaffes when issuing the final paychecks within your organization.
Join us and get up to speed on your final pay obligations so you can stay in compliance with state and federal wage and hour laws. The best way to avoid costly errors is to have a plan in place for employee resignations and terminations long before an employment relationship ends, and this webinar will teach you how to craft that important plan.

|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.
