The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) Texas, is one of the most comprehensive labor laws and is, at the same time, a challenge for HR compliance experts.Further, legal experts state that 90% of employment law class actions are wage and hour claims. This webinar will provide an overview of all facets of FLSA and practical tips for compliance. Top wage and hour laws and other common areas of noncompliance, such as employee misclassifications, making deductions from an exempt employee’s pay, paying incorrectly for travel time, not tracking time actually worked and providing “comp” time in lieu of overtime will be discussed. The webinar speaker will share a wealth of her experience in complying (and making mistakes!) to provide an informative session.
