Product Description

Master rules for minimum wage, overtime, rest periods, and travel time


Wage and hour law violations can be detrimental—and costly—to your company. In FY2015 alone, 79% of agency-initiated investigations resulted in costly violations exceeding $246 million! But compliance is a challenge because there are so many regulatory details to get right. Investing in your understanding of payroll law requirements now, can save your organization hefty fines in the future.

Join payroll expert Vicki M. Lambert to learn the ins and outs of Department of Labor (DOL) wage and hour requirements in this information-packed audio presentation. She’ll explain federal, state, and youth minimum wage; teach you how to calculate overtime pay and handle travel pay; and decode all the terminology set forth by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Lambert will also demonstrate what to do when state and federal law differ. Plus, she’ll define what constitutes a workweek and “hours worked.”

After attending this audio event, you will understand how to comply with both federal and applicable state wage and hour law as it pertains to payroll preparation. You’ll know how to handle numerous employee wage situations, such as rules about payroll frequency, lunch breaks, and rest periods. In addition, you’ll get clued into recently instituted local regulations related to payroll requirements.
