Wage & Hour Law Essentials

Course Description: 

On the surface, the Fair Labor Standards Act is a straightforward statute. It requires employers to pay employees at least the minimum wage for all hours worked and pay non-exempt workers at least 1 1/2 times each employee's regular rate for all hours worked beyond 40 in a workweek. Despite its easy appearance, wage and hour audits generally reveal at least one thing the audited employer is doing that does not comply with the law and sometimes the payroll administration mistakes can be costly.

Learning Objectives

MTI's Wage and Hour Law Essentials seminar provides an overview of the Fair Labor Standards Act and a practical exploration of the most common compliance issues. By the end of the seminar, participants will be able to explain the concept of a workweek and how it is used; know what it means to pay at least the minimum wage and why certain deductions are illegal; understand the broad meaning of an "hour worked;" differentiate between a salaried employee and an exempt employee; and avoid other common wage and hour pitfalls.
