The overwhelmingly vast majority of employers never intend to violate wage & hour laws. In fact, these same employers implement policies and practices to try and ensure full compliance with various, complex and technical wage & hour laws on a local, state and federal level. However, to their chagrin, employers find themselves in the middle of legal controversies despite their best intentions to avoid them. Wage & hour controversies inevitably come despite well intended management. Most often, wage & hour lawsuits (often including class actions) are generated by clerical mistakes, errors when inputting data, or even negligence by frontline supervisors that just don’t know any better. And, despite having the cleanest time and pay records in the universe along with properly trained supervisors knowing and implementing the most compliant wage & hour policies available, nothing prevents an employee or former employee to claim they worked “off the clock” or some other wild accusation that leaves the employer vulnerable.
In this 90-minute webinar, attendees will hear from one of the leading Labor & Employment attorneys on this subject, Jeff Risch of SmithAmundsen LLC. Attorney Risch will examine and discuss key policies, training materials, HR forms, and explore arbitration agreements and other tools designed to diminish the risk of wage & hour lawsuits and related class actions. This is a must attend webinar for any employer wanting to diminish severe financial risks.
