Be prepared to navigate the December 2016 FLSA update, and to understand wage and hour concepts, with this review of state and federal wage and hour laws. You will learn about your obligations regarding wage and hour compliance, how to mitigate overtime expenditures, and obtain guidance on avoiding common wage and hour pitfalls. Topics will include fundamental federal and state laws covering hours worked, time-keeping, overtime, minimum wage, and payroll period requirements; considerations regarding remote access and the Portal to Portal Act; trends in wage and hour enforcement; handling claims before the U.S. Department of Labor and the NH Department of Labor; new EEO-1 reporting requirements; and overtime exemptions, particularly the so-called "white collar” exemptions.
