Course Description

Employment and payroll laws are an important part of business laws that need to be complied with. Employment and labor laws govern the rules for employees. The Department of Labor makes sure of Wage and Hour compliance. 

However, in the wake of COVID-19 special situations, certain businesses are taking undue advantage. The Biden Presidency and changes with EEOC, DOL, FLSA, and NLRB are also significant.  

Employee lawsuits – for unwarranted termination, workplace harassment, or other issues – can be time-consuming, costly, and disruptive to your business and can negatively impact your team’s morale.  In recent years, agency-initiated investigations have increased dramatically. 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. 

Avoiding employee lawsuits should be a prime objective of any business, and by taking prudent steps, initiating uniform hiring and management policies, and creating an employee evaluation system, it’s possible to help lower your risks of employee lawsuits. 

This webinar takes real-world examples and educates attendees as to how they can avoid being on the wrong side of the law. 

Key topics included: 

  • Law updates for compliance by various authorities such as DOL, EEOC, FLSA, and NLRB.
  • Updates on the Trump DOL’s new Independent Contractor test, and how that stands now with a Biden presidency.
  • The Federal and state wage and hour requirements to be followed in the payroll department – and its violations. 
  • State regulations as they pertain to worker classification
  • 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.
  • Employee Discrimination and how to apply EEOC update needs to be incorporated and followed by businesses.
  • Owners understand the dangers of classifying a worker as an independent contractor when they really are an employee
  • Analyze each type of worker’s job duties to determine whether the DOL, IRS, etc.
  • Scenarios that can trigger an independent contractor audit and the penalties that can be assessed if the worker is determined to be misclassified
  • Discuss the requirements for designating an employee exempt under the FLSA
  • Examine the requirements for paying an exempt employee including the salary basis rules 
  • Review the various possible requirements on the state level for exempt employees


This webinar is presented by David Miklas, Vicki Lambert and Dr. Robert Minnitti.
