Why you should attend:
Counsel as well as Human Resources and compliance personnel whose responsibilities include wage and hour matters must keep up to date on the latest developments, and understand and anticipate wage and hour risks so that these risks can be effectively managed through compliance programs and responses to early warning signs. At the same time, given the sensitivity of these issues, it is critical for counsel on both sides to master best practices for investigating and litigating wage and hour claims that may arise, and to understand the pros and cons of arbitrating such claims. An understanding of the nuances of wage and hour collective actions, class actions and hybrid actions under federal and state law will also aid any attorney in the wage and hour arena. This full day program brings together nationally recognized employer and employee advocates, prominent in-house counsel, and government enforcement agency officials who will share their respective perspectives, insights and experiences.
What you will learn:
- Hear directly from the source about the United States Department of Labor’s current enforcement priorities and the DOL’s latest initiatives
- Evaluate the classification and compensation of employees armed with the latest developments under the Federal and key state wage and hour laws
- Analyze the arbitrability of wage and hour claims and key provisions to insert or omit from arbitration agreements
- Understand the nuances of wage and hour class certification, and related discovery and investigations
- Explore from the wage and hour perspective the effects of social media in the workplace, including the impact of the NLRB’s guidance on social media policies
