Course Description

The Department of Labor takes investigations of Wage and Hour violations very seriously!  In recent years, agency-initiated investigations have increased dramatically. In FY 2019 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.

Join Vicki M. Lambert, CPP for this information-packed online CPE webinar and get the information you need to help protect your company from financial jeopardy!

This online 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.

In this online continuing education course, we will discuss the wage and hour laws that apply to paying employees on the federal and state level.  We start with defining the crucial elements of wage and hour law including the workweek, a workday and hours worked, and how the hours must be tracked or accounted for. From this basis, we first discuss not only the rules for calculating overtime but the effects that other payments have on overtime including discretionary and nondiscretionary bonuses and commissions. We then work through examples of calculating overtime correctly using both the FLSA method and the alternate (or commonly understood) method as well as what to do if the employee is working at two or more races. We will discuss the minimum wage and how it can be different on the state or the federal level and what can be used as a credit against it by the employer.  But federal law does not cover all aspects of paying employees.  For this we need to concentrate on state laws in the areas of paid family leave, mandatory sick leave, meal and rest periods, pay stubs and notices, how often employees must be paid, acceptable methods that may be used to pay employees, and handling terminating employees including vacation pay-outs. We conclude with our section on what can be legally deducted from the employee’s wages. 

This online CPE webinar covers the following key topics:

  • Definitions and basics
  • The regular rate of pay
  • Calculating overtime
  • Minimum wages
  • Leave, meals, postings, and pay stubs

I am new to taking over the payroll after a few years of not doing payroll. This really helped answer the questions I ahd about how states are different. The non-discretionary bonus was a great example.

The required questions throughout the webinar were delayed and too specific. If the purpose of these questions were to validate attendance, they should have been non specific not detailed. several times the clock was running and no question was visable
