Fundamentals of Wage and Hour Compliance

Understanding the complexities of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is critical to effectively identifying, assessing, and mitigating FLSA risk.

Covering everything from minimum wage to misclassification, this intensive course lays out all of the FLSA’s key requirements to help HR professionals and employment counsel assess their overall wage and hour compliance profile and effectively audit and manage their FLSA risks. The course covers a broad range of FLSA issues, including compensable time and off-the-clock risks, overtime exemptions for executive, administrative and professional employees, calculating regular rates of pay, and worker classification.

This course delivers focused concepts and fundamental skills in a new, condensed 1-day format.
