Federal and State Wage and Hour Law: From the Basics to the Complicated – How to Achieve Compliance and Avoid Costly Litigation

Federal and State Wage and Hour Law: From the Basics to the Complicated – How to Achieve Compliance and Avoid Costly Litigation
Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr Executive Series
May 17, 2018

Wage and hour compliance continues to challenge in-house attorneys, human resources professionals and compliance professionals. With the continued filing of class and collective actions, as well as state and federal Departments of Labor continued pursuit of employers suspected of improperly paying their employees - employers continue to grapple with the same questions: Is this position exempt or non-exempt? Is this employee really an independent contractor? We realized that we made a mistake; now what??!!

Join attorneys from Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr’s Labor and Employment Practice for a full-day executive session addressing these and other difficult questions regarding wage and hour compliance. The session will be held at the Firm's Philadelphia Office at 1500 Market Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Ruth Rauls, Allison Feldstein, and Harriet Cooperman will provide an in-depth discussion of federal and state wage and hour laws, including misclassification, complex wage and hour issues, and ethical concerns, as well as effective strategies for ensuring compliance and avoiding litigation. Breakout sessions focusing on wage and hour concerns specific to Healthcare, Hospitality, and Higher Education will also be offered.

Our last hour will be a panel discussion where we will discuss Common Ethical Concerns in the Wage and Hour Context.

Following the program, please join our presenters and fellow attendees for a cocktail and networking reception.
