Why Attend?

Understanding and effectively handling wage and hour issues

  • Differentiate between employees and independent contractors (and understand why that’s important!)
  • Learn about Part 541 white collar exemptions
  • Gain insight into the proper mechanics of an FLSA settlement
  • Understand the law of joint employment, including latest developments

Wage and hour issues continue to be one of the hottest topics in the business and employment field. Lawsuits from employees are on the rise, and so are government audits targeting employers for potential wage and hour violations. Whether you are a management-side attorney, a plaintiff’s attorney, or just an occasional adviser to a business, this program is imperative for your practice.

Seasoned employment practitioners Mark Papadopoulos and Tom Spiggle will provide an efficient overview of the most important aspects of current Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) compliance and litigation. They will offer insight on the following topics:

  • Misclassification issues
  • Employee versus independent contractor
  • Joint employment
  • Part 541 white collar exemptions
  • Mechanics of settlement
  • Department of Labor initiatives

MCLE Credit Caveat: The MCLE Board measures credits by the time you spend in attendance.

From 2005 to 2008, he served as a Senior Policy Advisor to the Assistant Secretary for Employment Standards where he assisted on a full range of wage and hour matters including federal rulemakings, legal guidance documents such as Wage and Hour Opinion Letters and the Field Operations Handbook, and overall enforcement policy.
