The Department of Labor estimates that 70 percent of employers are not in compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”).  Could you be one of them?  Are you sure?  Wage and hour claims continue to steamroll employers around the country, and federal investigators have become much more aggressive about targeting violators.  From the new employee-friendly timekeeping app to the Wage and Hour Division’s collaboration with the American Bar Association to establish a sue-your-employer system called “Bridge to Justice,” you’ve got a lot to worry about – even if your intentions are good.

Now there’s help for the FLSA frustrated.  

Invest just one day to become even more proficient in FLSA administration and handle top management’s and your employees’ questions with even greater confidence.  You’ll get the very latest compliance tactics and you’ll enhance your advanced practitioner skill set when you attend this satisfaction-guaranteed event.  Master Classes also qualify for continuing education credits.

You’ll learn:

  • Why FLSA is the most dangerous statute for employers
  • Who is covered by the main exemptions to the FLSA
  • Which workplace activities are and are not compensable in light of recent court decisions
  • How to handle bonuses, commissions, and tips
  • Overtime avoidance techniques that work – and those that backfire
  • Why FLSA retaliation lawsuits are exploding, and what you can do to steer clear of them
  • And much, much more…

Master FLSA administration in just one day by participating in this all-new program created just for Massachusetts employers and HR management.  The standard fee is $497, but because of Skoler, Abbott & Presser, P.C.’s affiliation with BLR®, and your valued association with our firm, we’ve made special arrangements to discount your fee to $397.60.  For more details about this class, please e-mail custserv@blr.com, call (800) 274-6774, or visit http://store.hrhero.com/ma-flsa and mention code M899.
