April Webinar Addresses Complexities of Wage and Hour Compliance

California maintains incredibly complex wage and hour rules that differ depending on how the employer classifies its employees.

Compliance is complicated because most violations are subject to strict liability. So, it’s no surprise that wage and hour claims are among the most litigated employment claims in California.

And with the California Legislature’s renewed focus on enforcement of wage and hour laws — and the California Labor Commissioner’s ongoing duty to investigate and resolve wage and hour claims — employers must make certain they’re complying with these unyielding laws.

“Whether intentional or not, wage and hour violations can lead to significant litigation against employers,” said Bianca Saad, CalChamber’s Vice President of Labor and Employment for Content, Training and Advice. “The best defense is employers knowing the technicalities of California wage and hour laws so they can maintain compliance.”

On April 21, CalChamber is presenting a live webinar that will cover the most commonly misunderstood topics that lead to frequent claims and lawsuits, including:

  • Calculating overtime hours;
  • Knowing when to apply the regular rate of pay;
  • Properly handling meal and rest breaks;
  • Classifying exempt employees; and
  • Compensating exempt employees.

In addition to reviewing California’s wage and hour laws, CalChamber’s employment law experts will walk through real-life scenarios and case studies, and provide practical guidance on applying compliance rules to common workplace situations.
