Understanding and Strategic Avoidance of Clients' Wage and Hour Law Exposures

January 24, 2007 - January 24, 2007
8:00 am - 10:00 am

Signature Bank Headquarters, 565 Fifth Avenue, 12th Floor

Join us for a special informational program designed for accountants to help them understand key aspects of the wage and hour laws, how to identify their clients’ wage and hour issues, and what to do when these issues arise. Wage and hour issues and lawsuits are becoming more prevalent and our labor and employment partners will speak on the following critical topics:

  • Overview of the applicable laws (FLSA, State laws, wage orders, prevailing wage laws on public works)
  • Minimum wage and overtime requirements
  • Properly classifying employees under the administrative, executive and professional exemptions
  • Special situations (cash payments, “off the books employees,” “docking pay,” record keeping requirements)
  • Special industry issues (tip pooling, spread of hours, uniforms)
