Employers understand all too well the frustration of defending wage and hour claims. Over the past 10 years, filings under the Fair Labor Standards Act have increased 400 percent in the District of New Jersey and show no signs of slowing.
While the number of claims continues to rise there are several ways every employer can reduce the likelihood of becoming the target of a wage and hour lawsuit.
John Schmidt and Kathleen Connelly invite you to participate in an informative discussion designed to enhance your understanding of classifying employees, trainees and independent contractors. This program will discuss best practices for proper recordkeeping and share how the calculation of “time worked” is performed. Our team of management-side employment lawyers will also provide practical information as to how best to approach and resolve common wage and hour issues pertaining to exempt employees and executives.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. We hope you will join us.
