What you don’t know CAN hurt you and your company with disastrous consequences. When it comes to compliance with California’s myriad of wage and hour laws and regulations, avoiding costly litigation is even more difficult with the slew of hyper-aggressive attorneys ready to capitalize on even the most harmless technical infraction. Attendees will learn the proper method of classifying employees as exempt versus non-exempt and independent contractor versus employee. Attendees will also learn when and how to properly provide overtime, meal and rest breaks and acquire tools to avoid, wage and hour litigation, including class action and PAGA claims. Attendees will also learn how to avoid claims under the revived Equal Pay Act.
This Webinar is important for anyone tasked with ensuring compliance with wage and hour regulations in California.
The target audience for this Webinar is any business owner, in-house counsel, or human resources professional involved with wage and hour compliance for their company.
