As unemployment levels have reached record or near-record lows, FLSA and wage payment issues have risen to record highs.  Both federal and state Departments of Labor – in addition to many plaintiffs’ attorneys – are increasingly active in challenging exempt v. nonexempt employee status, timekeeping and overtime mandates, “employee” v. “independent contractor” classifications, joint employer issues, flexible workweek options, and numerous other twists, turns and hidden traps of this highly regulated and litigated area of law.  This seminar will explore those issues with details, practical tips and time for discussion that should help every employer navigate them better and hopefully avoid legal challenges before they occur.
