This webinar concentrates on federal and state wage and hour requirements that must be followed in the payroll department.  Areas of discussion include calculating overtime, travel time, minimum wage, posting requirements, meal and rest periods, how often an employee must be paid and by what method and paying terminated employees.

The Department of Labor takes investigations of Wage and Hour violations very seriously!  In recent years, agency-initiated investigations have increased dramatically. In FY2019 alone, agency-initiated investigations found violations that resulted in fines and penalties in excess of $322 million! 

Civil lawsuits for Wage and Hour violations are always a threat to business.  Penalties have been so severe that they have shaken the financial foundations of some of the world’s most successful companies.
