    "Do these Wage and Hour laws still make Cents to You?"
    Review of Federal and State Wage and Hour Laws and Tips on Compliance

    Wage and hour laws are increasingly complex and the stakes for noncompliance can be staggering. The challenge for HR professionals is not only to keep on top of these laws but to ensure that the executives, managers, supervisors, employees--  and the employer’s policies and practices -- also comply with these laws and regulations. That gets even more difficult when there are differences between state and federal wage and hour laws and when employers have operations/employees in more than one state. This presentation will review the most common wage and hour mistakes and how to avoid them), issues relating to overtime and recordkeeping, recent developments in federal and state wage laws, and tips on how to handle a Department of Labor Audit.
