Workplace Application:
You will learn how to review your wage and hour practices to identify mistakes that could result in costly litigation. 

With the rapid changes in the law, it's easy to focus on new issues and forget about the key reasons that employers get sued. Despite all the focus on compliance, simple mistakes allow DLSE claims, single-employees suits, and wage and hour class actions to clog the system and make millions for employee-side attorneys who pursue them. Further, every time you adapt to current lawsuit trends and implement prevention strategies, plaintiff's attorneys develop new hot claims to attack you with. This session will review the common mistakes seen recently and the current trendy claims from the plaintiffs' bar. You will learn:

  • To identify some of the most common wage and hour mistakes such as not having updated class action waivers, incorrect methods for calculating overtime on bonuses, and not double-checking payroll records.
  • Recent case law regarding on-call, rest breaks, exemptions and more.
  • Tools to audit your organization's wage and hour practices.
