Seminar Description


California's wage and hour requirements are more burdensome than any other collection of employment laws. Between determining the proper exemptions, enforcing the proper breaks and paying the proper wages, there is a myriad of issues to consider for California employers. Simple mistakes can lead to substantial liability and penalties, even when the employer makes every effort to "do the right thing."

In this information-packed seminar, employment law attorney Karen L. Gabler will discuss the most common employer mistakes in wage and hour law.

Topics covered will include:

  • Is your employee exempt or non-exempt?
  • Is your worker an independent contractor?
  • A year after Brinker…are you in compliance with the new meal and rest period requirements?
  • Meal period and Brinker waivers
  • The most critical wage and hour policies to have in your employee handbook
  • Policies to leave out of your employee handbook!
  • Payroll record-keeping and records retention
  • Minimum wages
  • Overtime pay
  • Travel time (and costs)
  • Expense reimbursements
  • Blended rates
  • Make-up time
  • Volunteers…getting something for nothing
  • Who may be coming after you…and for what?

If you reserve a spot and then later find that you are unable to attend, please inform us in advance so that we may offer your seat to someone else.
