Sands Through the Hour Glass: Wage and Hour Update

  • When: Apr 14, 2016
  • Where: Weintraub Tobin

Summary of Program

Unfortunately, both single-plaintiff and class-action wage and hour lawsuits continue to plague California employers. Often employers are sued because of technical violations that occur simply because the employer is unaware of its legal obligations. In addition, the ever increasing number of claims filed with the Department of Labor and California Labor Commissioner for unpaid overtime, and the increasing number of wage and hour class action lawsuits, highlight the importance of correctly classifying employees as exempt or non-exempt.

This seminar will discuss the nuts and bolts of wage and hour compliance. In addition, this seminar will help employers and HR professionals gain a more thorough understanding of the various exemptions available under California law and learn how to conduct a legally strong exemption analysis.
