I have to pay them WHAT???

California's wage and hour laws are more burdensome than those of any other state. Between determining the proper exemptions, enforcing the proper breaks, paying the proper wages and documenting the required information, there are 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 informative seminar, employment law attorney Karen L. Gabler will discuss the most common mistakes in wage and hour law. Topics will include the following:

  • The Dart case aims its arrow at California employers: when do blended rates apply, and how can you avoid them?
  • Is your employee exempt or non-exempt?
  • Is your worker a valid independent contractor?
  • Does Brinker do anything at all to protect employers?
  • The most critical wage and hour policies to have in your employee handbook -- and the policies to leave out!
  • Paying (and not paying) the exempt employee who is absent
  • Paying (and terminating) commissions to current and former employees
  • When is an employee "working" -- waiting time, on-call time, preparatory and concluding activities
  • Common mistakes on reporting time pay
  • Who is your employee? The joint employment trap!
  • Payroll record-keeping and records retention
  • Pay stub requirements and the "gotchas" that can result in wage and hour litigation
  • Compensatory time and overtime
  • Travel time (and costs)
  • Expense reimbursement
  • Piece rates and those pesky rest period payments
  • Make-up time and flexible schedules
  • Who may be coming after you...and for what?
  • PAGA vs. class actions
  • How to correct a wage and hour problem
  • The impact of arbitration agreements on wage and hour litigation
